Litchfield (Renovation) has designed a comprehensive guide for constructing on one's property a secondary living space as a rental unit, a guest house, or for a family member. He thoroughly discusses the factors to consider when creating this type of dwellingâsuch as working with architects, navigating municipal building departments, and selecting space-saving furnishings. Homes throughout the United States and Canada show various options from basement, attic, and garage conversions to stand-alone cottages. These 26 case studies are illustrated with floor plans and color photographs. Recommended for those looking for alternatives to housing aging parents or interested in the extra income of a rental unit.[Page 101]. (c) Copyright 2010.
