Back of Book: In 1990 Storey Communications sponsored the Compact House Design Competition, a juried contest open to architects, designers, and achitecture studeents. The best and most innovative designs were selected for this book...This is the perfect idea book for current and future homeowners and those interested in architectural design. Each design includes a site drawing, floor plans, elevation & section drawings, judges' comments and complete description.
I Say: I got this book hoping for even smaller home designs so am willing to list it. It is very useful and I would not be listing it if I was interested in this size home.
This book has a plethora of home designs. Book is best suited to someone who understands floor plans but this is not necessary to enjoy all this book has to offer. There are designs for homes to suite all tastes and all locations (except perhaps - polar). I am truly enjoying this book. It will remain in my library, as a must have.
