‘How To Live in Small Spaces’ by Terence Conran

(Conran octopus Ltd, $75)

Okay, so the price might seem steep, but if you consider that every square metre of house costs $2000 to build, you could be making a huge saving by taking on board what Sir Terence has to say. Anyone thinking of building or renovating should take a look at his advice on space-saving – he covers everything from digging out the basement to converting the garage into a sleep-out.

Actually, this book is worth it just for the Japanese case study at the end. You try fitting your family of four in there!
