Renovating a Life
Have you ever fallen in love against all odds? Discover what happens when a house has its own lessons to teach in this moving and insightful memoir that ultimately shows us how to make our homes (and lives) better.
In this mesmerizing memoir-in-essays, New York Times bestselling author Erica Bauermeister renovates a trash-filled house in eccentric Port Townsend, Washington, and in the process takes readers on a journey to discover the ways our spaces subliminally affect us. A personal, accessible, and literary exploration of the psychology of architecture, this book is designed for homeowners, remodelers, and those who are simply curious about how our built environments shape who we become.
Includes line drawings at chapter openers plus a map, and special blueprint-design endsheets.
