Outside The Not So Big House
Julie Moir Messervy
Sarah Susanka

Expanding Home to Include Your Outdoor Spaces

This book is not about landscaping or gardening. It's about the transitions and connections between the inside of a house and the outside, and the journeys and the places that can be made to extend the experience of home to the outside. Just as the inside of a house is a sequence of places for the experiences of daily life, so the outside continues this sequence. And the paths and places along the way, whether inside, outside, or in the in-between zone, are together what we call Home. Whatever the size of your property, the ideas contained herein will help make your house and garden two parts of a singular whole.

Identical Twins Grow Up Differently
By John McLoud
San Francisco Examiner. December '91


ALBANY – To look today at the two remodeled houses on Beverly Place and Ventura Avenue here you would hardly recognize that the dwellings started out as twins. The former has a full-height second-floor addition set back atop a flat-roofed bungalow, the original shape of which remains clearly evident. It appears quite removed from the latter, a pitched-roof dwelling with modestly sloped side dormers and totally flush tow-story facade.
