Book Give-a-Way: Home Sweet Home

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.


  1. From my friend Vivian, who just snagged the deck book:

    I had technical difficulties posting on your blog, so I hope this e-mail is OK. We were just talking about extending our deck - and I love power tools! - so if the deck book is stil available, let me know! Vivian

  2. Ooh, attics for me! (I thought about the decks book, too, but ummm, not so much. C.S. and I aren't quite ready for that one.)

  3. I was going to say the attics book, but JG beat me to it.

    I just bought our first house and it will be probably a decade before we get remodeling. But it's OK to dream, right?

  4. Rosemary snagged the Home Owner's Journal.

    That leaves only the second journal still up for grabs. Any takers?

  5. I'll take whichever book is left:-)



  6. My book arrived today! Thank you, thank you!

    Now all I need is the attic.
