Finally, a single place to keep track of everything you’ve done to your home, and to figure out what else you need to do, the BLACK+DECKER HOME PLANNER & LOGBOOK
When was the last time you changed your furnace filter? What was the exact shade of the paint you used in the guest bedroom? Is your oven still under warranty?
Every homeowner should know the answer to these questions, and many more, but keeping up with every little thing can be a challenge. It helps if you have a system! That's where the Black & Decker Home Planner & Logbook comes in. This book tells you what you need to know, how to get the information, and gives you lots of room to keep records about everything you do to your home, including:
• House History
• Financial Information and Warranties
• Scheduled Maintenance Log
• Heating & Cooling
• Repair Projects
• Decorative Log including Paint & Floor Coverings
• Outdoor Areas & Home Exterior
Why not just use a blank notebook? Because the Black & Decker Home Planner & Logbook is full of photos, illustrations, and tips to help you decode every system in your house, such as how to read a water meter or estimate the shelf life of paint.
The book is organized in four segments. The first three, “Understanding Your Home”, “Your Home’s Systems”, and “Your Appliances” gives a tour of the various components and systems of a home that need ongoing vigilance, inspection and maintenance. These are organized with intuitive logic, starting from the roof, moving down to the foundations and landscape, then moving indoors to examine the structural and surface elements, like walls and floors, and examining the appliances and other add-ons. The fourth section, “Home Logbook” is the journal itself, where the homeowner can document everything that has been done to the home, or who to call when your home needs attention.
Two large pockets attached to the back cover help you securely store receipts, warranties, manuals, and other documents, so you won't have to scramble to find your plumber's phone number during an emergency! Whether you’re an avid-do-it-yourselfer or a novice to the complexities of owning a home, the Black & Decker Home Planner & Logbook is the all-in-one repository for keeping track of everything that’s done to your home
The 411 by Maria:
This book is perfect for every home owner but especially for those just starting out. I wish I had this when we first purchased our home.
In the first few years we did so many updates to the home like the furnace, water pump, water filtration, hot water heater and more. In September our water pump went and we knew we had replaced it when we moved in but it would have been nice to be able to check back, see what the issue was and have all the information we needed. Since we didn't my husband had to pull the pump up with my assistance (gross nasty job) to get the measurements so we could go pick one up. It only took 2 days but it was annoying nonetheless.
I recommend this book to every homeowner to keep track of everything in one spot. There is even pockets for you to include receipts and manuals so you never lose them. A-M and N-Z so you don't have to search through everything.
From your roof to your driveway, your windows to your dryer it is all in here.
Great investment in your home and a great first home gift.
