Publisher's Summary

Renovation - money, anxiety, good faith, bad checks, tool breakdowns, people meltdowns.   

This is the inside story of the reno biz that you won’t see on any home renovation show. It is the real story of the men in tool belts that we let into our homes to transform the way we live. Open Up the Wall is a chronicle of jobs and job sites, unforgettable characters and mind boggling situations. You can’t make this stuff up! 

"Hilarious, heartbreaking, and achingly human. This is a riveting memoir. It is reflective of all the things that I decided too early, I wouldn’t be good at, leaving me wondering whether I should have tried them." (Sarah Polley, actor, writer, director)

"I found myself caught up in the narrative describing the world of house renovation...it is a fine book." (Patrick Crean, publisher, Harper Collins Publishing)

"Open Up the Wall has you laughing out loud one moment, and crying empathetic tears the next". (Ted Wallace, director, HGTV series The Really Big Flip)

Hilarious and entertaining from start to finish

I really enjoyed listening to this brilliant account of how Geoff grew out of acting and into a renovation contractor. The twists and turns of his contracting career had me laughing out loud as I drove. Geoff's narration, particularly the accents and impersonations, are fantastic and really made the book for me. I'll definitely be reccomending it!
