Living Big in Small Spaces

Rice Design Alliance (RDA) volunteers at the 2009 Architecture Tour: Small Houses.

If the choice were between style and space, I would take style anytime.  Tall Husband and I attended the RDA Small House tour this past Sunday. Unfortunately, no camera's were allowed; though some attendees did have point and shoots. However, we respected their rules...well, except for this drive-by shooting of one of the homes. For years, we have been volunteer docents at this event, but chose to just leisurely tour this year.

Small houses are so appealing. Each home on the tour "lives large" as each is so well designed from a space, as well as an aesthetic perspective.

  1. I enjoy the feel of small homes too. They seem more initmate and personal to me.

  2. Hello Natural Moments,
    Thanks for stopping by. I'm so glad we share the same thoughts about built space.

  3. I love it! Very creative!That's actually really cool.
