About this title

Synopsis:

The comical memoirs of a three-year struggle to restore an old house that had leaks, falling plaster, no heating or air-conditioning systems, and nineteenth-century plumbing, recounts the authors' adventures with new neighbors, merchants, and friends in a small South Carolina town.

From the Publisher:

When Gregory White Smith and Steven Naifeh first beheld Joye Cottage, a pleasure palace once owned by robber-baron William C. Whitney in Aiken, South Carolina, it was love at first sight. Behind the pristine facade, with its airy veranda, they discovered a "handyman special from hell." Undaunted, they bought it--and began the renovation project chronicled with love, humor, and enthusiasm in On a Street Called Easy, In a Cottage Called Joye, capturing both the easy, down-home rhythms of life in Aiken and the mind-boggling, soul-testing challenges of dealing with falling plaster, collapsing floors, menacing subcontractors, eccentric local characters, and other surprises.
