Pilar Viladas with the New York Times writes, "These pages are crammed with good advice (avoid gutters at all costs; add wide eaves instead) and realistic assessments of the way we live now." Read the full review.

Sara Suskana from the Not So Big Remodeling series says: "How many books do you know that can give you multiple and frequent full-throttle belly laughs while delivering basic and simple advice about how to make friends with, and even come to love, the house that until recently you’d imagined you’d be moving up from sometime in the not-too-distant future? Duo’s latest opus does just that. I loved every page of this fact-filled, practical book. It’s worth your time to read, even if you’re not planning to remodel any time soon."

Amy Barry from New London's The Day says: "...Dickinson helps homeowners do exactly that by giving easy-to-implement advice on everything from budgeting and phasing a project to dealing with your town's building department to real-life examples for remodeling every room in the house. He also gives a trove of valuable tips, such as venting a basement and saving a tree prior to starting construction. Read the full review.
