America's rapidly changing demographics - people living longer, an increasing number working from home, fewer people having children - demand for greater flexibility, reativity and awareness in home design and construction.
This book provides specific design approaches and techniques that facilitate flexible design - both on the inside and out. These principles make it simple to alter a dwelling's layout, demolish partitions or build new ones, upgrade heating systems, and change the locations of staircases.
The Adaptable House is divided into three sectionsL the first sets the stage for adaptability, the second outlines relevant design pricnciples, and the last shows their actual application in a variety of projects.
