WATERFORD PUBLIC LIBRARY: Sheri Koones (Downsize: Living Large in a Small House) Talk and Book Signing

Join us at Waterford Public Library for author Sheri Koones and her new book, Downsize: Living Large in a Small House. This event is part of Waterford Public Library's Retirement: Now-What? Series. This event is free and open to the public. 

About the Book

Best-selling author Sheri Koones presents the hottest trend in the housing market. The 25 small houses presented in Downsize are owned by people who have made a conscious decision to downsize from a larger home to a smaller home―or who just decided to build small in the first place. Some of the houses are new (site-built or prefab), others are remodels. All are 2,000 sq. ft. or less. The featured houses show how to use space efficiently through such strategies as:

  • creative storage space
  • multi-purpose rooms
  • pocket and barn doors
  • integrating smaller appliances

These exceptional houses show how small can be comfortable, practical, energy efficient―and beautiful.
