Hopefully this month’s Advocate has reached your front doorstep, along with our annual Home Design issue. (If not, it should sometime this week.) One of the Home Design stories profiles a family who turned their ranch house into a bungalow, and when remodeling the house, homeowner Cari Kelemen drew her inspiration from architect and author Sarah Susanka of the "Not So Big House" books.

I recently spent some time chatting with Susanka — who happens to have a new book out titled "Not So Big Remodeling" — and talked to her a little bit about her philiosphy, and how it might apply to homes and homeowners in Dallas. You can listen to our conversation in this Advocate Radio podcast.
