After working on an upcoming article about remodeling trends in 2011, it became obvious to me that it was a good time to recommend Sarah Susanka's books again.
Sarah is an architect and a best selling author for the " Not So Big" books. She has led the movement away from over sized homes and remodels for years.
Both of these books are excellent sources of inspiration for your future remodeling or building desires.
Sarah's viewpoint is in perfect alignment with the perspective that works for today's homeowner needs and budget. Homeowners that we have worked with that have embraced this idea of building better rather than bigger have continued to enjoy success in their remodeling efforts.
