Maximilian,
I just remembered there is a book called "The Compact House Book" edited by Don Metz which showcases about 50 ( I think ) designs for houses less than 1,000 Sq Ft.
They were the best of those submitted for a national competition many years ago and all have two bedrooms minimum.
Some great ideas there as well.

Good luck , Pete.

I'll see if I can get it from my library. Thanks! I have a small house plan book (someplace), but I can't recall off the top of my head how small they actually were.

Something which may be of interest to those following this general topic is there is enveloped into Microsoft Word a design package.

To access:
Open a M/S word document.
Click on "VIEW" then on "TOOLBARS" then scroll down to "Drawing" and check the box.
You should have another menu bar starting "Draw"
There is a dropdown marked :"Autoshapes" and "More Autoshapes"
In the second there is one marked "Office" (look for the paperclip icon) which has a range of basic items well suited to drawing house plans.

My preferred scale is 1/16 to 1 foot which is large enough to show details but still have one floor on the house fit on the screen.

Good luck,

Pete.

"75 award winning plans for your dream house , all 1250 sq ft or less."

I asked my library for both the old and the new version, along with a couple other related books. VT's library system is pretty poor, so I'm not real hopeful, unfortunately. There's no way for me to check availability myself through their system as it all has to go through the librarian. I used Google Books to do some searching, but that doesn't always match what the library can get via inter-library loan.

The 1988 version arrived today! It hasn't been checked out since 1990, so they let me have it for a couple months. Amusingly, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies arrived the same day. That they gave me for two weeks.

I want small, not ugly. Besides, I've seen RVs and they're a lot more cramped than my designs are.
