It is the 10 year anniversary of "the not so big house". This was the first book in a series published by Residential Architect Sarah Susanka. This series of books touts the virtues and benefits of great design, clearly illustrating with beautiful and thoughtful examples that modest spaces can be as functional and more intimate than large ones.
The book series has been exceedingly popular, and Ms. Susanka has tirelessly promoted it. In the process she has single handily done more to promote the value of an Architect than any efforts I have witnessed over my career by the American Institute of Architects. For this I say - Thank You Sarah Susanka!
Her book series can be found at Amazon.com
