Editorial Reviews:
In LOVE, LONGING & LUMBER, award-winning journalist Kathy Price-Robinson takes you on a literary journey through fifty-five of the most endearing, interesting and courageous remodeling projects she has visited and written about in the past sixteen years. As the Los Angeles Times' remodeling guru, Kathy brings you fascinating tales based on the truth about remodeling. Nothing is embellished. Nothing is made up. Her stories are a delight to curl up with, learn from, and be inspired by. You'll meet real families doing real remodels. And when you're done, you'll feel your own remodel begin to take on new energy. Consider the tale of one homeowner: "Carl Balton still remembers how he spent one particular Christmas Day — alone, miserable and working on his just-purchased first house, a 1928 fixer-upper. On that day, the tiny, run-down house is vacant, cold and dreary. Rain puddles ankle deep outside, and winds blast open the French doors he has just installed. Carl stares at his one-foot-high decorated pine tree and thinks: 'So, Carl, how do you feel about the house you just paid half a million dollars for? How does it feel to be a homeowner?'" As you’ll see in the book, Carl’s remodel turns out beautifully, as do all the other projects Kathy visits. There are challenges and grief, to be sure, but success in the end. The book is illustrated with charming line drawings that give you a sense of the project, keeping the focus on the story, the tale, the journey. A few enjoyable hours with LOVE, LONGING & LUMBER may be just what you need to get the project you dream about moving in the right direction.
