This book fills a huge void; there is literally no other book like it in the market place. Home Keeper is essential to record all home construction, maintenance, renovation and appliance details. It's a quintessential, Kiwi book that you won't have come across before. In essence it's a Home Owners Log Book, yet it's so much more than that. It's 100% made and printed in New Zealand in an elegant, beautifully bound, quality hardback, built to last and to be passed from generation to generation or from homeowner to homeowner, with very specific and pertinent details to their particular home. New Zealanders spend hundreds of thousands of dollars purchasing their dream home. Their solicitors hand over the keys, THEN WHAT? We cram all the important documents, photos and details into a crummy folder and lose them. Nearly 30 years ago, when Nigel Powell (the author) bought his first home, he thought it ridiculous that his home didn't come with a user guide, a log book, or instruction manual and the seed was sown for his book, 'Home Keeper' a Log Book for New Zealand Homeowners. After 13 years of painstaking research and editing this heirloom publication was put together and is is the only one of its kind anywhere. Divided into 5 comprehensive and easy to use chapters. Each chapter has different areas to record specified details such as the legal description of your home, a list of the entire construction materials of your home, room and garden plans, a 50 year maintenance chart, introductions to the resource management and other acts, and there's a whole chapter on property investment and tenants. It contains well-researched information and resource material with archive photos, diaries and tables. It’s a place to record the love affair every New Zealander has with their home. It’s a concise and comprehensive information tool kit, a source of advice and reference. Instead of having various files and scraps of paper scattered all over the house, now in one place you can collate all your property purchase documents, interior décor references (swatches, colour codes and samples), before and after photos, landscape plans, investment property details and a who’s who list of useful contacts, explaining their roles and function
