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!

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.

I LOVE this book! As a clutter bug and pack rat, my place easily becomes hard to navigate at times. This book has given my life a breath of fresh air! Everything now has its place and is easy to find, and Champley's projects have never made my tasks completely daunting. The book is fun, fresh, and explains everything you need to know when it comes to maximizing the space you have with the things you have. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone who needs help organizing their place.

This book gave me some real easy weekend projects that have solved my many storage issues.
I think this is a great book for every home. There are many easy weekend projects to more difficult ones. I found it easy to follow and it seems to contain all the necessary tools and materials for each job. There is a skill level to each project that helped me gauge the complexity of each project. Just when I thought I had no space, this book has helped me discover all the unused space I didn't think I had!

I love it! Karl Champley provides a practical step by step solution to finding all of your underutilized space. The difference with this publication than any other I have found is that everything I need is in this one book. It helps me plan, budget and execute the projects with confidence with all the materials and know how necessary. It's very creative!!
Thanks Karl!

This little book has shown me the possibilities right here in my house that I never even noticed. I have way more space for storage than I could have imagined. I love this book. It has a list of easy projects for beginner that links to the chapters those projects are in. It lays out the materials and steps for each project. Projects are rated for how hard they are. I now look at my house through new eyes.
