Some of you know David Giffels as a writer for the Akron Beacon Journal. (Some of my readers are even related to him!) You may know that he has written a book about his experience restoring his beautiful 1913 Tudor home. Today’s New York Times features an article about the book. Don’t miss the photo slideshow!
Look for David’s book, “All the Way Home: Building a Family in a Falling-Down House” in May. (I’ll keep you posted on that too.)
I love the way David and Gina renovated their house. Instead of tearing it down and starting new, they used the existing structure and made the home they love. It’s a true piece of Akron! And, they did it within their means – no credit cards. That’s even better! We should all live by their theory… if you don’t have the money for it, you don’t buy it.
Congratulations, Giffels family!
