Already, Ce Pelle is in the house! Not sure what Ce Pelle is working on yet, but perhaps it's the color. As she/he says, "This apartment is where yellow goes to die."

Support has arrived! Welcome to our fifth Eight Step Cure. For those of you who are new, starting this week starting a Spring home makeover project by following the eight chapters of our book, Apartment Therapy: The Eight Step Home Cure, and, because many hands make light work, we're doing it together.

The goal? To invest in our own homes through either elbow grease, money or both and make our own homes beautiful, healthy and organized. Again, we're also holding the Cure in four cities: CH, SF, LA and NY, so you can join a group that's close to you. A new signup and this week's assignment is below the jump...

Sign Up First: This year we're introducing an official sign up which you will find at the bottom of this post. It is meant to improve the experience and support you as you take on your own challenge in the next eight weeks. After you read through, head down there and sign up.

This Week's Assignment: Get your hands on a copy of the book and read through page 69. This gives you all the ground work and gets you started with the interview and short quiz on the health of your home.

The Cure posts will go up twice a week on Mondays and Thursdays, allowing for plenty of comment space. We will be pulling comments and pics to the front page post each week and everyone is urged to take pics and post them to this great Flickr pool or simply tag them with "apartmenttherapycure." See our old pics here too.

The Fall Cure is live in all four of our Home city sites:

Chicago & their Flickr group
San Francisco & their Flickr group
Los Angeles & their Flickr Group
New York & our Flickr group

Please choose the site nearest your home to join, but feel free to browse on all!

NOTE: We're having trouble pulling up the Book Blog right now, but should have it up by tomorrow and will post to the front of the blog to notify you
