Why not design your house to grow and change through time as your needs and lifestyle change. Friedman believes that 'a home should be constructed as a life cycle house where changes such as children being born or leaving the nest, elderly relatives moving in, or the need for home office space are all easily accommodated.'

This book is a thorough, even academic, discussion of adaptable house design. Friedman summarizes historical architectural movement towards adaptable design and explains why this concept is important today. He then goes on to present a survey of tangible design tools that facilitate flexible layouts.
