The Homeowner's Manual helps keep your investment working properly and saves you money by cutting down on bigger repairs in the future. From appliances to walls, gutters to pools, driveways to insulation, Lyday covers the inside and outside of your home from room-to-room and from A to Z. Organized seasonal check- lists and safety tips allow you to stay on top of your home's maintenance throughout the year.

Lynda Lyday's Do-It-Yourself! : The Illustrated, Step-by-Step Guide to the Most Popular Home Renovation and Repair Projects, my first book, is my gift to all the women and men who'd like an expert to guide them as they tackle home repair. I'm particularly eager to reach those who, like me, were never encouraged to pick up a tool. I'm excited to share my expertise -- and those secrets of the trade -- with my readers.
