Smaller is big, says architect and author Katie Hutchison, whose book The New Small House shows those looking to downsize how they can live smartly, economically and environmentally friendly in elegantly designed homes.

The book presents fundamental small-house design strategies, complete with whole-house case studies for homeowners eager to simplify.
Creating a great small house is illustrated in the opening chapter with 10 approaches, including:
