The Home Remodeling Management Book.

The Home Remodeling Management Book, by architect Kathryn Schmidt (Egger Publications, Palo Alto, Calif., 1987; $17.95) is a well-organized, simple-to-use project management guide. Starting from the premise that self-contracting is like running a small business, the 188-page book helps homeowners maintain control by combining an overview of the construction process with a workbook approach to tracking costs and staying organized.

Each of nine chapters opens with a onepage summary of what's involved in various phases of remodeling. Chapters tell you how to take charge, highlight potential problems and pitfalls, and close with 46 useful worksheets that help you plan and track your progress, A concluding section contains a bibliography and lists additional information resources.
