    1. Yet another tiny house book, there are a few good examples of rolling and fold-away furnishings that are ingenious. The 86 sq. ft. loft in Paris is astonishing, a shower, toilet, kitchenette, dedicated bed and a bank vault door with 4 massive hinges and 3 latches. (is it really needed?) Plus when everything is rolled away there's open floor space, you could have a small party in it. There are several other homes illustrated with this sort of rolling design, neat! The rest are the usual trailer, [...]

    2. Cute little coffee table book, with a page describing a small or unusual house almost all in an urban environment. None are actually "tiny houses on wheels" as I thought the title suggested this book would cover. However, it was still worthwhile as many had interesting histories like the Warsaw house squeezed between two buildings on the border between two former Nazi ghettos. Though the book could have been bigger to better appreciate the homes, the size suited the subject matter. Or the home a [...]

    3. The dwellings in this book present an interesting and sometimes even bizarre use of space. Some dwellings look like upmarket packing crates. Visually, they are unappealing, particularly from the outside. Indeed, some are very box-like, and in stark contrast to their neighbors' homes. My husband referred to them as, "a blot on the landscape." In addition, other homes such as "A Cabin in a Loft" look unfinished, which caused him no end of frustration. Also, the "Briefcase House" looked like you mi [...]

    4. I usually give photographic books three stars by default because they are exactly what they claim to be: beautiful photographs of the subject at hand. However, I was disappointed in this book. The fault may be mine, as I was hoping for something more than just artful pictures. I wanted floorpans and descriptions and explanations of how things are organized. Basically, I wanted Better Homes & Gardens to write this book. With a few exceptions, I don't feel that we really get the sense that any [...]

    5. Tiny Houses in the City features an international collection of more than thirty homes that exemplify compact living at its best.Unlike Micro Green: Tiny Houses in Nature, the houses in this collection are actual residences that people can (and do) live in full-time, which makes their designs more applicable to tiny house owners-builders. Coupled with the detailed profiles and color photography, I recommend Tiny Houses in the City to all those curious about the Tiny House Movement.3.5 stars

    6. Quick look through. There are symbols showing you the square footage but you had to decipher what the colored circles in the top left/right corners were (square feet/size of house). You get ideas from how people had their homes made and styled but not as in-depth as I was hoping for. Nice carry around size. Would be nice to see books like this showing how people decorated their homes inexpensively.

    7. Think tiny coffee table book. Frustrating when I wanted more detail on a specific house, but a good overview of many tiny houses in different environments.

    8. Interesting to look at, but not nearly enough photos to give you a true sense of most of the houses. Interior shots were especially scarce. I would have liked a lot more from the book.
