Editor's Note: Small is Beautiful

There is nothing like a serious challenge to help you focus your thinking. This focus often leads to better conclusions than you might have considered otherwise.

The challenge for many people today is how to get what they want in their dream home — a dream home that has been downsized to fit their new budget realities. It is causing people to sacrifice some grandiosity and instead to give other considerations a higher priority.

Take Bill and Marise Craig, whose 16-by-19-foot…

Windows, open to the outdoors, bring in the seasons and allow you to feel and enjoy the weather, without being assaulted by cold or heat.


So, design your home to take advantage of the nature…

The Timber-Frame Shrine to Incompleteness

It might be time to get out the chisels and saws and build a timber frame.
