Renovating Old Houses: Bringing New Life to Vintage Homes
Renovating really old houses involves a dedication, desire and sense of purpose that will be tested constantly during the project. From foundation rot and infestations, to dealing with out of plumb / out of square conditions and upgrading utilities, Nash directs the reader through the challenging process of bringing an old (and sometimes dilapidated) house back to life and its former glory. Lots of great illustrations, and plenty of solutions to those unending and always unplanned "surprises".
"From foundations to finishes, George Nash packs each page with first-hand, practical insights about mending the bones and keeping the character of old houses–even better in this new edition." Gordon Bock, Editor-in-Chief, Old House Journal
