The Not So Big House

“The smallest of details speak to our heart and often bring the greatest delight to you, the homeowner.”

A Not So Big House is a well done, thoughtfully constructed home, and at Lamar Valley Craftsman, we fully embrace the idea. Terms often used to describe one include high design, attention to details, and architect or design driven.

‘Not So Big’ is a term derived by architect and author Sarah Susanka that speaks to the concept of “less is more” by surrounding ourselves with higher quality. A Not So Big House doesn’t mean that the house is small. Rather, it is a house that may not be as big as you thought you needed. It is one that is designed and built to perfectly suit the way you live.

Construction of the Not So Big House is achieved by focusing on better finishes, mechanical systems, and space layout and design in a home. With good design that focuses on flexibility and lifestyle needs, you typically can create a home with less square footage, which offsets the higher costs of better finishes and mechanical systems. The Not So Big style creates a welcoming environment in your home that will serve you and your family for many years to come.
