In 2008, the trend of American homes increasing in size finally came to an end after 40 years of constant growth. The new time period we live in now has been coined the Era of Less. Residential market trends have shifted to smaller homes with greater practicality and high functioning living space. This information taken out of this months issue of Builder Developer magazine supports my reasoning behind creating the new standard of homes, the High Performance New Home. The book I wrote describing this type of home building is now in the final design stages of publishing (front cover, bio, etc.) My Publisher Write Life Publishing will have the book in book stores very soon.
