Video: This 980-Square-Foot Home Maximizes Family Space

Despite often designing homes larger than 15,000 square feet for their clients, Houston-based design team Mark Schatz and Anne Eamon have designed and built a 980 square-foot house for their family of four. The couple designed and built the home largely on their own, out of leftover materials collected from projects their firm has worked on over the past few years.

The design is based on a complex cast-in-place concrete structure with clerestory windows, and features a central core box for the home’s mechanical elements, which includes the bathroom, washer and dryer, and refrigerator in an effort to save space.
