by Sarah Susanka
No current Talk conversations about this book.
This is the book from Susanka that I really wanted to read. She shows how to take what you have and make it a better fit for your family. The changes illustrated in Not So Big Remodeling range from rearranging the already existing spaces to transforming the whole house. She also shows how small changes like a wall painted in a dramatic cover or widening a door can have a dramatic impact on how a room is perceived. Lots of before and after floor plans and photos.
Perfect guide for wisely remodeling your home to make it more lovable and livable. Green, practical, wonderful.

Sometimes small changes can have a big impact. But many homeowners looking for more living space still insist on building expensive additions or completely rebuilding their home. In the latest groundbreaking step in the "Not So Big" revolution Not So Big Remodeling, Sarah Susanka and Marc Vassallo demonstrate how carefully chosen tweaks and simple additions can make a home seem much larger and more inviting. They avoid high-end architectural solutions, focusing instead on how "Not So Big" ideas can dramatically improve even the most modest home. The authors show readers how to think like an architect, so they can accurately assess their home's shortcomings, apply "Not So Big" principles to their remodeling plan, and phase in their project incrementally over time. With this book, Sarah Susanka once again proves that a little remodeling can go a long way.

My main issue with this book and with Susanka's Not So Big series as a whole, though, is that Susanka's idea of "Not So Big house" seems to be my my "Quite Big house, certainly much bigger than where I currently live!" This is a great book if you're trying to make a 2000 square foot house a more pleasant space for a family of four; it's not so helpful for how to make a 1200 square foot house into a pleasant space for that same family of four, unless you really do plan to put that So-Big addition on.
