Additional Information

A home is a family's single largest purchase, and one of the few that doesn t come with an owner's manual. The Hawaii Home Book fills that void. Equally suited for owners of new homes or for those fixing up an older house or simply looking to maintain their investment, this book covers the nuts and bolts of keeping a home in the Islands, from lighting to landscaping, roofing to pest control. Here are time-proven solutions for preventing and treating unique problems such as salt water corrosion, mold growth, and tropical pests that Hawaii's homeowners face. In addition, author Karen Anderson guides the homeowner through the often overwhelming process of choosing the flooring, roofing and cooling, among other home improvements, that's right for his or her particular residence.

Finally! A book written just for the homeowner in Hawaii. I like the friendly, humorous writing style. Great tips for everything from pests to roofs to rock walls. Lots of things I didn't know! Plus ways to save money and not be penny wise and pound foolish. Thanks to the author and publisher for writing the book we've all been waiting for. This one is a must-have, and the tips will save you the cover price many times over. Rate highly.
I bought this book and am really impressed with all the information because it is specific to Hawaii. It doesn't matter if you are a renter or a high-end homeowver, all the tips and info in this book are really practical. I like the section on propane, online tiki torches, rock walls, and swimming pool maintenance. I've passed this book along to friends, and I think it is the bible for living in the tropics. The bug section is really great, and includes info how to kill a centipede and what to do about carpenter bees. Even general topics like windows, flooring and screens all relate specifically to Hawaii...
The book has some good tips for living in the tropics. The sections on dealing with pests is the most valuable. Other parts of the book talk about general construction practices and products which anyone who has some interest in home improvement will already know, but the information may be useful to newbies.
