Nothing new here. I find more interesting stuff on tv, the internet or my library. Waste of money. And it was pricey.

Format: Paperback
Karl Champley's book, "Same Place, More Space," of do it yourself, space saving ideas made the once daunting task of moving in with my girlfriend a seemingly fun and easy experience. Champley offers brilliant storage optimizing solutions for almost any or every room in your living space and really makes the most out of tight spaces. The best part is that most of the solutions were rather easy to accomplish on our own and the instructions are very easy to follow, especially when my girlfriend made sure I actually followed them.
The addition of the floating shelves in our bathroom has changed our lives; we are now able to actually use our bathroom sink without putting our things on the floor. Then of course the biggest challenge for us was the closet, there was no way we were going to fit both of our wardrobes in it comfortably. Since neither of us wanted to give up our clothes we had to make some changes and WOW! After using Champley's closet makeover we actually have EXTRA SPACE in our closet. We were stunned!
This book is a must have for anyone having trouble with clutter in their living space. The easy to follow instructions along with the difficulty level of each project represented by a certain number of hammers at the beginning of each set of instructions were really spot-on. This is a book that I will definitely be keep, using, and recommending for years to come. Thank you Karl Champley!

Format: Paperback
Great book! Such a helpful and easy to read guide for creative projects that really help with limited storage. My place doesn't have much extra space and these ideas are perfect for making the most out of what I have. Some of my favorites are the fold away drying rack and the fold away changing table. The next project I have my eyes on is the Window Seat Storage- I would LOVE to have a sunny spot to curl up and read and I don't have to feel guilty of taking up the room bc there's storage for my books and Knickknacks underneath!
I also appreciate that the book ranges from the smaller projects like modular book shelves to a more complicated ones like turning one room into two. I'm not the most handy of people per se so it was nice to start off simple and easy- maybe one day I can get to some of the cool stuff in the back!
All around well-designed book with drawings, step by step instructions, time estimation, and materials needed list all right there. Would definitely recommend it.
