David Giffels in NYT April 17, 2008

bookSome 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!

    I’ve had a hectic month at work that’s the only way I can explain how I missed this post! You already know I’m a long time fan of David’s writing and the subject matter! Just the other day I was asking DH if he’d like to move back not just to Ohio (and the Cleveland area) but near to his old home on Schneider Park – great memories there and I still love those old homes…can’t wait to read the NY Times story.
