From Animal House to Our House
Ten years ago, Ron and his then-girlfriend, Jill, did the impossible. They bought condemned property--a big Baltimore Victorian brownstone ­and vowed to bring it back to its original glory. The house had been home to Baltimore's most notorious fraternity for a decade and now, wrecked and abandoned, it was filled with garbage. As if that weren't daunting enough: Ron and Jill had been dating for only six months and they knew nothing about fixing up old houses. Friends, family, and concerned onlookers told them not to do it ­ they would surely lose their shirts and their love in the bargain. But Jill wanted the house and Ron wanted Jill. So Ron bought the house.

A fun read with anecdotes on the horrors and rewards of restoring a home and how to repair relationships, too. With application to any urban area, especially cities like Cleveland, Detroit and Baltimore (where the story takes place).
