For everyone who's ever dreamed of simplifying their life and downsizing their home, Micro Living offers an insider's look at what tiny house living is really like.
Best-selling author and tiny house enthusiast Derek "Deek" Diedricksen profiles 40 tiny -- but practical -- houses that are equipped for full-time living, all in 400 square feet or less. Detailed photography and a floor plan for each structure highlight inventive space-saving design features along with the nuts-and-bolts details of heating, cooling, electric, and plumbing systems. The real-life stories of residents impart the pleasures, as well as the challenges, of day-to-day living. With tips on what to consider before you build, along with framing plans for a prototype small cabin, Micro Living is the perfect starter handbook for both dreamers and doers.
Diedricksen designs and builds tiny houses. This time he focuses mainly on the "true tinies" but points out that striving toward simplicity is more than "going small." The act of scaling back, even a bit, can have time- and money-saving results. -- adapted from introduction.
