Little House On A Small Planet
Simple Homes, Cozy Retreats, And Energy Efficient PossibilitiesBook - 2006
Little House on a Small Planet is a guidebook to this movement, and an invitation to join. Author Shay Salomon offers fourteen basic principles for the design and habitation of efficient, high-density homes. These fourteen principles outline the invisible supports of a happy home, set within the context of a future, more caring society. With floor plans, photographs, advice, and anecdotes, Little House on a Small Planet asks and answers, "What fills a home when the excess is cut away, and how do we get there from here?" Shay Salomon is a handywoman, carpenter, and construction manager. She has built several tiny houses and now dreams of converting her smallish bungalow into two apartments. She lives in southern Arizona. Nigel Valdez once dreamed of owning half a dozen houses all over the world. Now he dreams of having dozens of friends all over the world, and a small tent to sleep in when he visits them. He lives in southern Arizona.
