From Animal House to Our House: A Love Story by Ron Tanner
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
For anyone who's contemplating buying and rehabbing an old house, especially in Baltimore city, this is a must-read BEFORE you do that. I'm not suggesting that you'll choose NOT to buy an old house, but author Ron Tanner's experiences will, at the very least, give you a clearer picture of what you'll be up against. And if you love old houses, as Ron does, you'll choose to go forward in your quest to possess a grand old lady! This book is especially interesting as Ron's house just happens to be "local." If you can't get down to his neighborhood to see the house, here's the next best thing: http://www.houselove.org/.
