the BIG small home!

Cornell has a few passions, but one that is really close to his heart is designing and building smaller, but high quality, spaces for all.  Designs to help us and the world!

Although there are quite a few modular system or kit build systems, the 'BIG small' is an individual custom designed home built with conventional construction methods. Cornell is perfectly suited for intimate one-on-one projects that are generally 'too small' or not profitable, for larger architectural firms.

THE home purposely designed with balance and harmony,  for you & with you.

The BIG in small is quality before quantity.  Small does not mean inferior, inadequate, cheap or limiting.  All to the contrary.

As Susan Susanka,  acclaimed architect and author of 11 books on ‘The Not So Big House’ says… "it means not as big as you thought you needed, but built to perfectly suit the way you (should or want to) live.”!

SMALL or smaller is all relative, but less always leads to moreness!

It is a HOME, personally designed and built to lastusing traditional building methods, not a generic dwelling in a kit-format!
