$19.95
More Info

From the publisher of the bestselling Idea Books comes a new design sourcebook series that moves beyond inspiration and provides the essential information homeowners need to make smart choices for remodeling.
Today's bathroom is more than just the most practical room in the house. It can be a place to retreat and relax, a place to multitask, and a place to show off. Add to that the fact that the return on investment for a bathroom remodel can be as high as 90% and it's no wonder homeowners are indulging themselves in the latest styles and designs to create the ultimate bathroom.
In Bathroom Ideas that Work, Scott Gibson provides design advice for bathrooms and budgets from small to large, from powder rooms to kids' bathroom to adult retreat. Throughout the book he provides design options for all components found in each of these types of bathrooms as well as how to successfully combine those components to create a great room. A wide range of styles, materials, and layouts are featured in hundreds of photos that provide fresh ideas for everything from the floor material to the wall color, lighting to heating, and fixtures to window treatments.

This multifaceted book offers insight into everything bee-related: pollination, gardening, beekeeping and recipes. Whether you're a first-time beekeeper or looking to improve and expand your backyard beekeeping, this book is a must-have.

Beekeeping might seem exotic or old-fashioned, but around the world it is becoming more and more common to find a hive or two in urban spaces and suburban backyards. Some modern beekeepers are inspired by the desire to help out the frequently beleaguered creatures, others simply enjoy fresh honey from the most local of sources--the backyard garden. This book discusses your options for setting up a hive almost anywhere, how to plant a bee-friendly garden, and how to harvest and use your very own honey. Not only is it a great hobby, you'll also be rewarded with a plentiful supply of honey that you can use in tea as well as for cooking, baking and perhaps even lip salve and skin cream.

Everything the modern day beekeeper needs and more:

Becoming a Beekeeper

Setting Up Your Hive

Getting the Right Gear

Planting a Bee-Friendly Garden

Trouble-Shoot Your Hive

Harvest the Honey

Plan for the Winter

The honeybee is one of our greatest natural resources; bees work hard to pollinate our gardens and do an important job that we couldn't do without. But bees are finding it increasingly difficult in the world that they share with us. States are reporting a hive of activity in the 'backyards' of rural and urban beekeepers. In fact, many states are beginning to alter preexisting ordinances in order to encourage more individuals to start beekeeping.

No other hobby can simultaneously help save the world and bring sweet treats to your table!
