Read this book if you are interested in fun, creative and unique tiny spaces; not always practical but definitely one-of-a-kind. Also if you like this one, check out the Relaxshack.com You Tube channel for more tiny house tours from the always entertaining, laid-back host, Deek.

Very self promotional, more like a sales catalogue, or "Tiny Home and Garden." Glossy, superficial, focused on decorating. There's little here for the Canadian environment. For the do-it-yourselfer using found junk.

The first chapter presents 14 tiny houses (with kitchens and bathrooms) with floor plan diagrams as well as interior photos. The remainder of the book is vernacular whimsy; and the concluding chapter on frame construction verges on dangerous. As usual with the sketch plans "the devil is in the details"!

An awesome book if you're interested in building a tiny space be it a tree fort, a tiny cabin on wheels, a backyard mini oasis or studio, a small Bunkie for your cottage property. Ideas are given for using salvage supplies and/or with new. Loved this book! Great ideas here.
