All the Way Home

All the Way Home: Raising a Family in a Falling Down House comes out on Tuesday, My 27. This must-read by David Giffels is about his family’s restored Tudor home. David writes about the process of starting a family in Akron, and finding their dream home – a falling down house on Portage Path – and rebuilding it. Don’t miss it!

bookI love the way David salvaged so many materials for their home. The Giffels’ see beauty in other people’s discarded bricks, railroad ties, and other building materials, and turn them into treasures. Reuse to the max!

  1. I think I experienced just a paragraph of David’s book this weekend when I pulled a 4 inch piece of brick and paint off my chimney. Yikes!

    The previous owners of my house painted the chimney. Here’s a little tip… brick is porous – it breathes. Paint locks in moisture. Don’t ever EVER paint a chimney. It will crumble in a few years’ time. Unfortunately, mine is crumbling now.

    Anyway, this kind of shows how universal this book is. As we all do our home improvement projects, we’ll remember David’s book, glad we bought his book and not his house!

  2. I’m well into the book, and I really think we’ll all find David’s commitment to salvage inspiring. As he tore out a basement wall, he carefully stacked the wood that others called trash, knowing that he can use that wood to rebuild the garage. Awesome! He saved and salvaged everything he could. That mindset not only saves things from being unnecessarily produced for consumption, but it saves a ton of money!
