I haven’t seen the movie, but I read Diana Phipps’ handbook for taming affordable housing. The title is Affordable Splendor. The book paid for itself in the first chapter.
Ms. Phipps grew up in a large central European house of privilege. Her family was driven into modest quarters in New Jersey after the Russians invaded her home country. Surfing a reference recently, I stumbled across the news that Ms. Phipps is back in the ancestral digs. They cost eight million whatever the currency is to maintain each year, and she’s bringing in four.
