The Not So Big House

Before Sarah Susanka published her best-selling series of books, starting with The Not So Big House, Heiland Hoff Architecture was already advocating strongly for the same concepts and values.  We have designed plenty of 8,000 to 12,000 square foot residences, and we will design one for you if you insist.  But we would prefer to create for you a smaller house that employs excellent space-saving features, allowing an equivalent lifestyle in a smaller space.  If you choose to spend the same amount of money on a 2500 square foot house that you would have been willing to spend on a 5000 square foot house, it doubles the cost per square foot, allowing more spectacular luxury and splendor.

Heiland Hoff himself chooses to live in a 900 square foot house.  While it isn't for everyone, living in not so big house is at least something you ought to consider.
