Homes built for $200 or less per square foot.
He's done a book on houses that are 1500 square feet or less, but small doesn't necessarily mean modest budget. James Grayson Trulove's Great Houses on a Budget does mean modest budget. Well, relatively inexpensive, try $200 or less per square foot. The book features fifteen in-depth case studies from each region of the USA, each with lots of photography, detailed floor plans, sections, elevations, and site plans. The cost per square foot for each house is given, and each profile discusses the construction techniques and building materials used to keep costs down.
