So good I bought it twice!
This is the second time I bought this book. The first time, I thought it was so good that I thought a friend of mine absolutely had to read it, too. So I gave him my copy. I finally missed it so much that I bought myself another copy and read it again. For anyone who has attempted home repair or renovation at any level, this is a must-read. You will feel so much better about your own projects! Giffels has a great sense of humor and his writing style is engaging. Even if you've never lifted a hammer, you will enjoy this tale.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

A great trip thru time
I was raised on North Portage Path near the Seiberling Mansion in the 50's and 60's. This book brought back so many memories of the homes along that road. They were the most beautiful homes. It is so nice to see that someone wanted to save one of them. It is a shame that the Firestone mansions were torn down and replaced with condos. They should of all been saved and let the public see how it was back in those times.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I could not put this book down. I still can't believe that Mrs. Rayner lived in that house until the day she had to move out. Great book. I was so glad that this was recommended to me.
