Inspired by the difficulty of organizing and managing my own very tiny renovation, this is the first and only comprehensive organizer/workbook -essentially a big, customizable three-ring “filofax”- for homeowners, re-modelers, renovators, contractors, architects, and designers.

 

 Includes  all the forms you need  to plan, organize,  and record the details of what is  invariably the most expensive, complex, and infuriating process a homeowner will ever undertake.

 

In addition, the book contains just enough hard information to ease your mind and save your wallet: all  the stuff – and only the stuff – that you really need to know.
