Anyone who's 50 or older should have this intelligently conceived, wonderfully illustrated, room-by-room guide. With advice on everything from creating multilevel countertops to installing grab bars in the bathroom, it explains how to make your beloved house safe, easy to navigate, and conducive to independent living, as you or your parents get older. Three sections help you plan for any necessary remodeling, present makeover examples for every room, and lay out projects with instructions. Some of the alterations are do-it-yourself; others may require a professional. More complicated tasks receive especially detailed discussions that clarify exactly what the job entails, how long it should take, and what it typically costs.
