Best book available on sustainable homes and building! 7. November 2010
Von Oregon Farm Mama - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I am not a professional architect or a builder, but my husband and I have a passion for small, sustainable dwellings. We were blessed to have the opportunity to buy bare land to farm, which allowed us to live our dream of building our own small home (600 sq ft) and an even smaller guest cabin (196 sq ft). Along the way to realizing our dream, we read a ton of books about small and sustainable home design. Many of the books we encountered with "small" or "green" in the title turn out to be something else completely: fancy photo books featuring expensive not-very-small custom homes. Maybe the homes are passive solar and energy efficient once they are built, but they are not very thoughtful beyond that -- they don't seem to question our society's notions about comfort, necessary spaces, and how we live in our homes in general.

"Little House on a Small Planet," on the other hand, addresses ALL of these things. It isn't a book full of glossy photos and floor plans -- instead it's full of thoughtful text (and many interesting photos too) asking us to consider what we really NEED in a home. What about home feeds our soul and makes us truly happy and content: Is it having as much space as possible? Or, is it having the RIGHT spaces?

It comes at the question of what we need in a home from different angles, including things rarely discussed, such as how the size and layout of a space affects our interactions and relationships with our family members. It also brings up the important topic of embodied energy and questions whether new 'green' homes are any better for the world than preserving and maintaining older, smaller homes.

The book also provides the stories of real people who live in small homes -- something conspicuously missing from almost all home books. We meet the people who live in the homes and hear about how they inhabit the space -- why they chose the design and how the design directly affects their daily life. We also see people from every class and income bracket -- home owners and renters alike. It's quite a diverse offering and probably more useful and "close-to-home" for people who can't afford the custom architect-designed homes seen in other books (which is most of us!).

There is so much packed into this book (photos, stories, charts, ideas, floorplans) that I couldn't even begin to share it all here. This is a book that will open your eyes to things you take for granted and force you to become an INTENTIONAL dweller in your home. Suffice to say that I would recommend this book to anyone thinking about moving into a new rental home, buying a home, building a home, or remodeling a home -- in other words, EVERYONE!

Do you want to be happy? 19. Januar 2010
Von Andre C. Foti - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
What this book is not -
It is not a book of low square foot home plans
It is not a book on how to build anything
It is not a book that tells you must live in a tiny little eco-pod or you are a bad person

Primarily it is a series of interviews of people who have chosen to live in less space, with less stuff, so that they can concentrate on what is most important to them; raising children, working fewer hours, dedicating their lives to a vocation, art or belief...

Through simple yet effective exercises it helps you to determine what strategies might work for you to live in less space with fewer possessions, using less energy and creating a smaller ecological footprint.

It offers advice on building new, renovating old, or living in a completely non-traditional way - such as a tiny house on wheels or in a tipi.

If you read this book, and take any of it to heart, you will save money (by spending it on things that are actually important to you)and live better within your own means AND the means of the planet and your fellow humans.

great book! 15. Februar 2010
Von Stephanie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Even though this book is written for people looking to build or renovate a house, I think it would be a great book for anyone who is looking to simplify their life. There aren't a lot of pictures but the concepts in this book are well thought out and really make you stop and think. As a hippie at heart I am really enjoying this book =)

Interesting 5. Oktober 2011
Von Arline R. Stone - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Interesting. I knew what I was buying because I read the reviews. The stories of why people were living in these sometimes very small "houses" was interesting. A few of the dwelling places were very innovative, some were strange. I live in a house, with my husband that is 985 sq ft. We sold a 2100 sg. ft. house, our dream home, and simplified our lives by buying a very small house on beautiful acreage.
We have our own well, use very little of anything, and only have a 3/4 bath. Friends and family were shocked that we changed our lifestyles so radically, most people cannot imagine that we chose this old Farm and lifestyle, but we did. Making the move had nothing to do with the economy, it has been an adventure. A person can change their lifestyle willingly, even past middle age.

Inspirational 28. August 2011
Von knittymama - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Love this book! We're living in an officially 950 sq ft house (cellar doesn't count) by choice. When we first bought it, it was because 950 sq ft was all we could afford but over time we realized that living in a small house changed the way we lived, our values, our relationship. All for the better. Living in a small house has really helped us focus on what's important to us and freed up our time for those things instead of paying for or maintaining a larger house than we need. It has also left us more yard for growing food and flowers. We've now finished our cellar (6'2" ceiling) into more living space (a family summer bedroom so we don't need to use so much energy keeping cool) and a playroom and we find we have a "spare room" that we really don't need.

Reading this book was so validating and encouraging. We agreed with so many of the reasons to live in a little house. We loved reading other people's stories and thoughts. I'd highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in living smaller or who is questioning many of the blind decisions we make without really thinking about our values and sources of true contentment.
