Living in paradise is fun. But maintaining a home in paradise? Auwe. Somewhere along the way, the ocean breeze corroded the TV, the rays of sunshine faded the couch and the rhythm of the falling rain was actually the rhythm of roof damage. The Hawai‘i Home Book: Practical Tips for Tropical Living, by Karen Anderson, helps navigate these perils of paradise. Produced in partnership with Hawai‘i Home + Remodeling magazine, sister publication of Honolulu magazine, the book covers ways both old and new homes can handle everything from the flora (mold) to the fauna (roaches). Also learn about choosing the right landscaping, lighting and other home improvements. $19.95, Watermark Publishing, available at most bookstores. You can also order it at www.bookshawaii.net.
