And much more!What people are saying about House Keys: “This is an entertaining guide to home ownership. Lisa's columns have helped hundreds, maybe thousands of folks already. I love the simple yet informative writing style." – Becky Long, Editor, Clay County Progress“Today’s new homeowners, especially millennials, want the fastest and easiest route to an energy efficient, automated, and organized home. House Keys delivers to this generation as well as to those who want to spiff up or sell a home they’ve had for a long time.” – Peter Morley, Realtor “This homeowner’s manual is the only book you need. Now I know what I’m giving friends and family for the holidays. I love the pencil drawings and the stories.” Mary Ann H.House Keys is not a mash-up of all the current downsize and organize advice books. At 450 plus pages with over 230 succinct articles, House Keys delivers real stuff that works for real people. Honestly, I had trouble putting it down.” – Robert AubreyThe Back Story: House Keys was born because readers of Lisa’s weekly home improvement column told her that they cut the articles out of the paper and put them in notebooks, and the notebooks were taking over the bookcase. Worse, they were having trouble locating specific topics. Said one reader (Betty), “Obviously my indexing system is not working. I need the article on microwave tricks and I can’t find it. Please send it to me? Lisa, will you assemble these into a book for me?” Lisa said, "Yes!"HOUSE KEYS MAKES A GREAT GIFT FOR NEW HOMEOWNERS AND ANYONE WHO OWNS A HOME AND WANTS TO SAVE TIME AND MONEY.
