Layout of Pages on Last Home in Our Book SMALL HOMES

Just did layout of the last home in our next book, Small Homes: The Right Size. It's a 2-family home converted to a duplex in San Francisco,. Downstairs is Jay Nelson, his wife Rachel Kaye, and their daughter Romy; upstairs is Dalia Burde — all 3 are artists (probably Romy (above) too).

This is what's called a "tenants in common" agreement, where 2 parties buy a home together. Listen up, people looking for homes in cities, here's a way to cut costs in half with the important prerequisite that you're compatible (and remain so) with each other.

At left: staircase between the 2 units, in the back yard.

We've got another month or so to go on the book. I've been neglecting a bunch of things, like working out, blogging, traveling—to get it done. Boy, do I want  to get it done!

Next we're working on the "front matter" and "back matter," as well as the all-important, the big kahuna—the cover. We're probably changing from a single home on the cover to a collage of 14 photos. I'm going to put up our cover choices here for general feedback pretty soon.

Listening to this song just now: Marty Raybon - There's A Ghost In This House - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=St1-_JQwidosong now:

Hillary's Shimmy

I just about jumped out of my chair when she did that. It was so playful. She was having fun. Body language zinger.
