Old House Handbook 2 Books Bundle Collection titles includes : Old House Handbook: A Practical Guide to Care and Repair, Old House Eco Handbook: A Practical Guide to Retrofitting for Energy-Efficiency & Sustainability Description: Old House Handbook: A Practical Guide to Care and Repair Here, for the first time, is a completely authoritative guide on how to look after your old house - whether it's a timber framed medieval cottage, an eighteenth century urban terrace or an example of Victorian or Edwardian speculative development. Taking their lead from the conservation approach of the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (who have approved and authorised this volume), the approach is one of respect, restraint and repair rather than 'restoration' which can so easily and permanently destroy the rich historical legacy of any old building.This book provides richly and deeply informed practical guidance, with sections including: Breathability and Damp Structural Movement Roofs Timber and Carpentry Windows Doors and joinery.

It seeks to answer the questions homeowners and others are asking about how to make old houses - medieval and timber-framed, Georgian, Victorian or Edwardian terraces - energy-efficient and sustainable.
