Great book, but houses not that small!!
on 1 February 2013
Great book about eco houses and anyone interested in the ecological approach to housing will like it! BUT the title "small" probably refers to people who are used to having a "normal" sized house of over 250 square metres (2,700 square feet), because here the author presents houses of 150 sq. metres (1,620 sq. ft) as small! There are only 13 houses of under 100 sq metres (approx. 1,100 sq ft) out of the 40 presented in this book, so if you're like me in thinking that a small house is considered to be in the size of 60 square metres and under then you'll be a little disappointed.
Overall, this is a great book with beautiful pictures which explains in general what makes each of the buildings 'green' and eco-friendly. And even though the houses are a little bigger than I expected I am still happy I bought this book! :)
