Owning a cabin or vacation home should be about relaxing and getting away from it all. The key to making that seasonal home a vacation Shangri-la rather than a black hole gobbling up time and energy, is to keep it in good repair. Maintaining a Vacation Home will show two-house owners easy ways to maintain a cabin or vacation home, increasing the time available for sailing, reading, hiking, barbecuing and other recreational activities.
Readers will learn how to properly close a vacation home at the end of the season, how to open it up at the start of the vacation season, and time-saving ways to maintain a seasonal home through the vacation weeks. Whether the second home is a deep woods cabin, a seaside cottage, or a vacation home in the mountains, this practical guide shows readers how to protect their investment and get the most from their vacation time.
