Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Is your house too small? Why not tap into the unused space of your attic and basement before shopping for a larger one? Schmidt (Finishing Basements & Attics) and Paymar (IdeaWise: Basements & Attics) have produced an excellent book showcasing the potential of attics and basements. Before delving deeper into renovation projects, the authors first cover planning and evaluation of the space and highlight potential problems. All possible aspects of finishing are covered, including special projects such as adding a wet bar or radiant heating. Very clear instruction and good step-by-step illustrations round out the guide. Highly recommended for all collections. —Library Journal, June 1, 2007
