The Ultimate Guide to Organize and Inspire You So You Can--Really!--Sit Back and Enjoy Your Second Home

The Second Home Book is the first of its kind - a conversational, comprehensive and convenient guide to setting up, operating and, most of all, enjoying a second home. It is cheerful and useful--funny, fact-filled, anecdotal - appealing to both those already ensconced in or encumbered with a 2nd residence as well as those imagining a future, fantastic home.

In The Second Home Book, you'll learn:

--how to furnish your second home on a shoestring (without relying on castoffs from your primary residence)

--how to run your second home efficiently from afar

--how to assemble a dream team of helpers (from handymen to cleaning help) and keep them motivated

--how to entertain (even other people's children) without exhausting yourself

--why you should avoid renovating your second home's kitchen

--how to handle bills, routine maintenance, and emergencies

--how to turn any house into your dream house

The Second Home Book is not about how to finance a second home--it's about absolutelyeverything else you need to know in one cheerful, easy-to-navigate volume.
