Best-selling author Sheri Koones will talk about her newest book Downsize: Living Large in a Small House
that shows how small houses can be comfortable, practical, energy-efficient, and beautiful.
The small houses—all 2,000 square feet or less—presented in Downsize are owned by people who have made a conscious decision to downsize from a larger home to a smaller home—or who just decided to build small in the first place. Some of the houses are new (site-built or prefab), others are remodels. Presented as case studies, the featured homes showcase a variety of styles and locations; all boast numerous green features and space-efficiency strategies that can be applied to any small home.
Discover how scaling back and simplifying where you live opens up a world where the demands of maintenance are lower, accessibility and convenience are enhanced, energy efficiency is elevated, and monthly bills are greatly reduced—all without sacrificing a well-built, beautiful home.
Books will be available for sale and signing through Diane's Books.
