While it hasn't given me too much info regarding my specific endeavors in remodeling, it has given me vast amounts of insight into the processes and ideas behind remodeling a house. It takes you through the entire house, offering ideas for specific rooms at multiple budgets and at the same time offers solutions to specific "popular" problems.
All in all, this book is a good read for anybody interested in learning more about home remodeling. It's definitely worth checking out, especially since you won't be spending a ton of money to get it.
