Compact Houses

For those of you who cannot wait to get the new Compact Houses covered here earlier this week, we point out that Carles Broto published his version earlier this year. It includes treehugger favourites like the Wee House and others that prove that one can really live very well with less. One can read in the Wall Street Journal how most American houses are getting bigger; it is important to point out that small truly is beautiful. It's not as green as the newer book appears to be, and as always the book is rife with second homes in the country with just a sprinkling of real urban solutions, but things look so much better on a mountaintop. ::Compact Houses
