More people than ever before are buying new homes or renovating existing homes. Confronted with hundreds of decisions that range from the deceptively simple to the complex and costly, most homeowners find themselves overwhelmed and bewildered: What sort of profile should the kitchen cabinets have–bullnose, cove, flute, ogee, reverse ogee, roundover or straight? How much would it cost to add electrical outlets or move the bathroom sink? Endlessly useful, beautifully illustrated, practical in organization and portable in size, this invaluable companion to The Pocket Decorator picks up where the first volume left off, exploring in depth the most complex issues facing most home buyers and renovators: construction and renovation, kitchens and bathrooms, space and stair configurations, and vital systems in the home, and well as appendices covering “green” design, mortgage terminology, and real estate terminology. From structural basics to hardware finishes, from adding or removing walls to installing a pressed tin ceiling, from choosing appliances and countertop materials to lighting, heating and cooling systems and floorplans, The Pocket Renovator is the perfect gift for anyone buying or renovating a home.
