P. Allen Smith: Resolution #1 - Home Renovation
Author and garden/design expert P. Allen Smith says, "In 2014 I hope to complete the renovation of my original Garden Home. Last year a storm severely damaged the roof and south side of the 1905 Colonial Revival house in our historic district. I love this house and this disaster (could have been worse) was all the impetus I needed to kick start a long overdue makeover. Wish me luck!"
