- Same Place, More Space, by Karl Champley (Chronicle Books, 256 pages) $27.95
SPACE may not be the final frontier that Captain Kirk proclaimed, but finding some extra space in your home can be just as exciting.
Efficient use of available space is crucial as people move into smaller living spaces or just run out of room in their own place.
Master builder Karl Champley tackles 50 projects around the home to show how with planning and good execution you can maximize your space. From simple projects (like a storage box for your deck) to remodeling your attic, Champley offers plenty of suggestions.
Each project is introduced with a reference guide that outlines the amount of time the project should require, how difficult it will be, what tools and materials will be necessary and an illustration of how it will look when completed.
Champley's descriptions are to the point, and while they are not for a real novice, they are well thought out and easy to understand. The projects may well be starting points for your own modifications and inspire you to come up with new ways to use the space that already exists in your home.
