Review by: G Miki Hayden on Sep. 07, 2011 :
This is a must-read for anyone planning to buy a foreclosure and renovate. It's a good read, actually, for anyone who plans to buy an existing house for the first time. And it's a fun book since we readers didn't have to go through the struggles that the Smith family did--although I'm sure they're glad to have come out the other end. The book is well written and nicely detailed.

Wow, what a great short story that I am sure will inspire others to take the plunge into a challange. Joy and her wonderful sisters worked hard to create a home that would fit their every need. God bless them and God bless the next stories to come!

Review by: Vincent Miskell on July 13, 2011 :
Joy Smith’s Remodeling ebook takes the reader on an upbeat odyssey of house selling, house buying, and house remodeling (or perhaps house rebuilding). Her style is lively, detailed, and, at times, quite amusing. She integrates the details (setbacks, struggles, and mini-triumphs) of her efforts, along with the help of a small army of contractors, plumbers, and others, so well into her virtually day-by-day narrative that we speed happily along with her toward the wonderful ending that we know must lie just ahead. Anyone thinking about remodeling (really transforming) a fixer-up house (that might also need extensive landscaping) will gain insight, courage, and many, many practical tips from her first-person reports that begin in January and end in June when her beautiful home finally becomes ready for its house warming party.
