Big Ideas from a Not So Big perspective
I've had this book for 2 years and it is dog-eared from the constant perusal. There are great ideas of how to maximize your space without building a McMansion! I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in remodeling and want to keep the integrity of their home, or those who are building from scratch and want to keep some land around their property.Was this review helpful?

Sarah Susanka - The Martha Stewart of Home Design
I ordered Creating the NSBH before it was released because her first book The Not So Big House, confirmed my thoughts as to how I would have my family's new home designed. In Creating the NSBH, Sarah tours through several new and redesigned homes that cover various architectural styles yet still follow the general principles of the NSBH. I found both the text and the pictorials were well-written and expertly photographed, and gave me additional ideas for our new home, set to start construction in January 2001. Yes, I think Sarah is becoming the Martha Stewart of Home Design. Quality of design and surroundings, not quantity of space is truly what Americans are yearning for. While you may not agree with Martha or her style, she undeniably the American expert in homemaking, just as Sarah has set forth the new paradigm in home design. I whole heartedly recommend Creating the NSBH to anyone seeking to build a new home, or remodel an existing one.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
