For the Love of Renovating

Tips, Tricks & Inspiration for Creating Your Dream Home

by Barry Bordelon, Jordan Slocum
For the Love of Renovating is the inspiring, game-changing book every fixer-upper needs, whether the project is budget remodeling or a full gut-renovation.

Jordan and Barry—aka the Brownstone Boys—are the enthusiastic go-to renovation team for historic Brooklyn brownstones and other older homes that need a little TLC. In their debut book, they walk readers through the entire process of renovating a house, starting with things to consider before you’ve made an offer, followed by guidance on developing a design, a schedule, and budgeting; they end by giving a room-by-room tour that includes tips and inspiration for a successful renovation. The book also features a chapter on preserving and refurbishing historic details (like wooden archways and crown mouldings). Throughout the book, beautiful photos and Renovation Recipes give the ingredients and step-by-step instructions for turning the house you have into the house you love. 

"Jordan and Barry have a deep respect and love for restoration. They truly know how to preserve the best details of a project, and you can see that beautifully displayed in the pages of this book." – Joanna Gaines, Magnolia Co-Founder and Co-Creator of Magnolia Network
