Publisher's Description

Renovating your home has never been so easy -- thanks to Sharon Hanby-Robie's helpful advice. The author of the hugely popular My Name Isn't Martha, But I Can Decorate My Home assists you in renovating your house to perfection in this professional, no-nonsense book that will help you achieve Martha Stewart's results without spending a fortune. From simply adding new accessories to your kitchen or bath to gutting the entire first floor, interior designer Hanby-Robie will show you how to create a living space that complements your personal style. You'll learn:

What the difference is between an architect, a builder, and a designer

How to create an exterior style to match your new rooms

Divided into three sections -- EVALUATION AND PLANNING, INTERIOR RENOVATIONS, and EXTERIOR RENOVATION -- this invaluable guide tackles every room in your house, including windows, floors, heating and cooling systems, landscaping, and even garages. In her witty and accessible style, Hanby-Robie offers words of wisdom, trade secrets, and cost-saving tips, whether you're making a few small changes or starting from ground zero. And she shows you how to do it with skill and style -- on a budget you can afford.
