⭐️⭐️⭐️ the author and her husband buy a second home in serious disrepair and fix it up. I enjoyed a lot of the practical things about cleaning and renovating the house. The emotional journey and the bits about the house telling her what it needed worked less well for me. I‘m sure money was tight, but that hits different for a couple raising a family and buying and renovating a second home on one income. Between a soft pick and a so-so.
