Comments: Good for bungalow attic remodel I bought this book for design ideas for the upstairs (attic) of my bungalow. It's pretty limited on space, so I have to make every bit count. This book offers a variety of ideas and styles, including offices, in-law suites and some cute kids' rooms. Lots of helpful pictures and even a guide at the end on where they bought the stuff for their remodel.
