With small, thoughtful changes, the home you live in can be the home you love. Offers solutions beyond mere square footage. Instead of thinking "bigger" with a vast addition, the author encourages us to think "better," revealing a more sustainable process that evaluates existing space to determine your true remodeling needs. Rather than gutting a kitchen, consider removing a wall to connect it to the surrounding spaces and create a more open floor plan. Instead of adding on a new family room, see how a modest "bump out" and a little interior reconfiguring can solve your space challenges in a more attractive and cost-effective way

Have you ever found yourself asking, "Is this all there is to life?" Or wondering if this bigger life you have created is actually a better life? And how it all got so out of control? In her previous book, The Not So Big House, architect Susanka showed us a new way to inhabit our houses. Now, she takes her philosophy to another dimension by showing us a new way to inhabit our lives. Most of us have lives that are as cluttered with unwanted obligations as our attics are cluttered with things. Our ability to find the time to do what we want to do has come to a grinding halt. Susanka shows us that it is possible to take our finger off the fast-forward button, and to our surprise we find how effortless and rewarding this change can be.--From publisher description

Live/work : working at home, living at work by Deborah Dietsch( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the same format as the popular Living Large in Small Spaces, Live/Work by Deborah K. Dietsch is full of innovative and inspired ideas for incorporating work into the home. The home office or business can be many things - writing desk, painter's studio, recording booth, architect's draft board, reading room, sanctuary - but the two dozen home offices profiled in Live/Work all have one thing in common: extraordinary design. Some of the spaces profiled are huge, taking up entire floors on their own, while others are cleverly tucked away in backyards or rebuilt garages. More than mere bill-paying desks or temporary work areas, these creative spaces have been carved out by some of the most progressive architects and designers in the world. The aesthetic tone of these offices ranges from classical to ultramodern, but the balance between life and work is completely natural
