Great stuff. We have been working towards many of the same goals. I have some very cool ones that we are about to wrap up, including a very cool modern cabin in the woods that I call Mike's Hammock. It is a 604 sqft Father In Law suite in my own backyard. I'm looking forward to what you produce.

My last two projects have addressed this exact subject - a trend to smaller, more efficient spaces using clever design to make up for the loss in space. Less housekeeping and more living is a theme I hear a lot from clients. "The Not So Big House" movement as articulated by architect Sarah Susanka in her book of the same name will be 20 years old next year. I'm actually surprised it has taken this long for the concept of building better, not bigger to get some traction.

Walls are important, they allow for electrical outlets and privacy.
