9781561585359: Renovating Old Houses: Bringing New Life to Vintage Homes (For Pros By Pros)

The definitive book on how to bring an old house back to life -- without destroying its spirit -- is now updated with all new color photography.

Experienced contractor George Nash covers everything -- from replacing foundation walls to repairing old windows, including how to save what's irreplaceable, where to use the best materials, when it's necessary to update (and when it's not), and how to make repairs that will endure. This revised edition also contains a new chapter on preventive maintenance plus a resource guide.

Throughout the book, Nash balances an abiding love of old houses with a common-sense understanding of modern-day needs. Whether you already live in an older home or are contemplating buying one, this hearty book gives you detailed, professional-level information you can't find elsewhere.
