Hard to know what to call Jay Shafer. Institution comes to mind. Of the dozen or so "tiny house" books I've previewed over the past several months, his name pops up time and time again. Going to the source was important. This book features straightforward, detailed information with incredible pictures. Need to know how to tie everything together? The back portion of the book includes architectural plans for those with the confidence to jump in.

All in all, highly recommended.
