Now, she takes home improvement to the next level by exploring the various ways you can add not only style and comfort but also property value to your home. From the backyard to the kitchen sink, from open house to closing, with easy projects and tips for every design style and budget, Invest in Your Nest helps you to spend wisely and live comfortably, whether you plan to stay put or sell.
