Experiencing the principles in action

Sarah Susanka’s Not So Big Showhouses

Sarah Susanka’s Not So Big Showhouses have given homeowners and professionals an unprecedented opportunity to experience how Not So Big principles can apply to every level of design—from the smallest detail inside the house, to the street, neighborhood and community as a whole. When all these ingredients are mixed together, the experience is truly more than the sum of its parts.

Home By Design Showhouse

Sarah teamed with building scientist Steve Easley and custom homebuilder Paul Trudeau to build and present the Home by Design Showhouse at the 2004 International Builders Show.

While the home is now privately owned, more than 8,000 people from all over the country have visited the Showhouse.
