Home Sweet Remodeled Home. The American dream of owning a home and then buying or building a bigger and better one is no longer a sure thing. Millions of homeowners stymied by the housing market and the economy have embraced remodeling instead. In this timely book, maverick architect-author Duo Dickinson offers hope on how to get the home you want from the house you have. He shares his passion for saving money without sacrificing good design and offers up cost-saving options and smart solutions to make older homes better fit today's lifestyles.
