Houses for Sale

Publication, 15 November 2019

There are all kinds of houses—big houses, little houses, strange houses, old houses… But how do you decide which one is just right for you…

In Houses for Sale a family travels through architectural history searching for their perfect home. When nothing fits, they decide to build one together. But there is always more, to add, to change, until finally, they realize there is no such thing as the perfect home — it is the search that they truly enjoy. They end where they began, imagining what’s next.

Houses for Sale was written and illustrated by Michael Meredith and Hilary Sample of MOS. The book is both a children’s glossary of architectural form and the true story of lifelong curiosity.
