I have a few home-themed books up for grabs. No fancy rules, just first come, first served. If you would like one of these books, please leave a comment and I will make arrangements to get it to you.* All are in "Like New" condition. They have been sitting around on my shelf for a while, but not getting any attention. The Home Owner's Journal: What I Did and When I Did It This is an actual journal that you fill in and use to keep track of improvements and projects on your house. I got it for my new house, but ended up with several similar journals that I received as house warming gifts and I only need one. This is good, particularly if you are building a new house or doing a whole-house remodel, because it is organized room-by-room and includes sections to note everything -- floor coverings, light fixtures, window treatments, etc. The Complete Home Improvement & Decorating Organizer This is another interactive home journal, very similar in content to the first one, but larger in size, with more room to write. It may include more sections on interior decorating, but there is space in the other to include that information too. Attics: Your Guide to Planning and Remodeling Our plans changed -- no attic remodel for me. Lots of pretty pictures, good ideas, and practical advice. Ortho's Guide to Decks & Patios This is definitely a hand-on guide to building your own deck or patio. Great stuff, but I can barely handle a garden spade, let alone power tools. * U.S. only, please.
