In this book, Michael Guerra gives us some insight on how to live in a smaller space which in turn allows us to reduce housing costs. It covers strategies such as reducing the amount of stuff we own, storage, multi-purpose spaces and much more.

Just checking out your video (without sound at this point) got me exctited about your book. Ive lived in a 12 foot camper for almost two years. Its now a dorm room for me and my girlfriend while attending school. Im sure the orginal design of the camper had more "practicle" multiuse furniture than it does not. It was remodeled by an older couple that remove most of the praticle storage space and stabilized all the multiuse furniture (ie the bed nolonger allows acssess to the storage space underneth it, and the folding table no longer folds.) I have been hoping to remold the space into a more praticle one, but I now plan on reading your book before i touch anything.
