Picture 3 Architect Sarah Susanka, FAIA, has some "Not So Big" things in store for Libertyville, IL.  On Wednesday, February 9, 2011, Sarah will unveil drawings of her Not So Big Showhouse design for SchoolStreet Homes. More info after the jump...

As stated in the SchoolStreet Homes press release:

Susanka’s Showhouse in Libertyville is a landmark event. For the first time, the best-selling author of the Not So Big House series of books has agreed to design a house for a major development. Her goal is to introduce a semi-custom product into the mainstream residential housing market. The Showhouse [which is already sold even before the design was unveiled] will feature all the hallmarks of a Not So Big house, emphasizing quality, character, energy-efficiency, sustainability, comfort and beauty. Gone are the unused formal rooms. Remaining spaces are perfectly tailored to fit today’s more informal lifestyles. In short, it is designed for the way we really live and is filled with Susanka’s trademark Not So Big built-ins and details that turn a house into “Home.”

SchoolStreet’s Front Porch Revival homes blend almost seamlessly with the historic turn-of-the-century homes in the neighborhood. Each house design offers an updated floor plan with classic architectural style including American Craftsman and Bungalow. The development features 26 lots along with a historic school that will be transformed into 15 urban lofts. The development is located a block from a vibrant downtown and blocks from a commuter rail train station. Houses start at $525,000. The Not So Big Showhouse will be around 2,450 square feet.
