SF Spring Cure: Week One - The Beginning

SF Spring Cure: Week One - The Beginning

Elizabeth
Mar 10, 2008

Ready to get started? We have a great group of 35 readers signed up for the Northwest SF-based Cure, and we hope you're ready to get going! Today marks the official start of the Cure, and we hope that most of you have bought the book and started reading. If you haven't gotten through page 69 of the book yet, you still have this week to do it (if you ordered from our store, copies are UPSing out today.) Now's the time to decide what Cure track you're going to be on: the whole-house Deep Treatment or the One-Room Workout. Personally, I'm going the Deep Treatment route, hoping to once and for all get our house into a truly healthy state a year and a half after moving in.

    Some of you have already been posting to our flickr pool, and it's great seeing people already giving each other advice (I've been having some computer issues, but am going to try to get photos of my own house up in the next day or two).

    So - Deep Treatment or One-Room Remedy? Anyone getting stuck or having problems already?
