Good Books: The Cabin

The last post mentioned my love of small smart homes and books that feature them.

The Cabin, a beautiful coffee table book by Dale Mulfinger and Susan E. Davis, is one of them. I love this book.

In my opinion, the title is a bit misleading. The book really focuses on small (sometimes extremely small) homes. Many of the designs could easily work in a more urban environment.

And while the Amazon site features examples of the more rustic homes in the book...

almost half of the homes are contemporary in spirit if not outright modern.

But the most compelling feature of the book is the very inspiring uses of space. It illustrates just how well one can live in a small space; that vast space is a luxury, not a necessity.

Clever, clever.
