The House to Ourselves
Reinventing Home Once the Kids Are GrownBook - 2004
Parents with grown children represent one of the largest demographic groups in the country today, and their living needs are often radically different from when they were raising families or working full-time. Architects are responding with innovative solutions to the demand for homes designed for two but with room for more. This book, featuring hundreds of color photos and illustrations, covers renovations and remodels, brand-new homes, and even new types of communities throughout the U.S. Ideas vary from single-level designs to accommodate the physical needs of people as they grow older, to flexible open-floor plans that welcome visitors and allow plenty of socializing. "The House to Ourselves helps boomers explore a wealth of possibilities.
