SARAH SUSANKA is a bestselling author, architect and cultural visionary. Her "build better, not bigger" approach to residential design and her "Not So Big" philosophy lead an anti-elitist movement to re-popularize residential architecture.

The Not So Big House (Taunton, 1998), her groundbreaking first book, was followed by eight more books in the Not So Big series, including Home By Design (Taunton, 2004) a book describing the different principles and concepts that allow one to build "Not So Big."  Inside the Not So Big House (Taunton), about the built-in details that bring personality to a home, Outside the Not So Big House (Taunton, 2006) weaving inside and outside together with 20 examples of gardens that surround "Not So Big" houses; and more recently, Not So Big Remodeling, which applies the Not So Big principles of design to our existing homes.
