Publisher Description

A look at a range of small houses around New Zealand, and the strategies the owners used to get a toehold in the tight housing market. From building a secondary dwelling on an existing family section, to tiny houses on pocket handkerchief pieces of land, these approaches to housing will give ideas and inspiration to all wondering how it can be possible to own a first home in the twenty-first century. Each entry begins with a statement about the strategy the owner used to achieve a home of their own. The houses range in size from 100 square metres right down to a very cosy 34 square metres! Beautifully photographed, and including plans and costs, the houses presented are in Puhoi, west and north Auckland, Raglan, Tamahere, Taupiri, Whanganui, New Plymouth, Wellington and Christchurch.
