Summary:
"Here are some 150 builders who have created tiny homes (under 500 sq. ft.). Homes on land, homes on wheels, homes on the road, and homes on water, and homes in the trees. There are also studios, saunas, garden sheds, and greenhouses. Here is a rich variety of small homemade shelters, with 1,300 photos, along with stories of people who have chosen to provide their own roofs overhead."--P. [2] of cover.
