Publisher Comments:

Preserve the original charm of any outbuilding while making it usable again!

From the foundation up, from the walls in, and from the roof down, craftsman Nick Engler shows you how to save money, history, and architecture when you renovate or restore, rather than replace, you barn, shed, or outbuilding. You'll learn how to square and strengthen the structure, repair or replace the roofing and siding, enlarge and modify the building, install new windows and doors, and add electricity and plumbing. Engler also includes practical information on how to evaluate an old structure in light of current building codes.

Engler's experience as a woodworker and teacher shines through with straight forward text, clear drawings, and invaluable tips. (Mario Rodriguez, author of Traditional Woodwork: Adding Authentic Period Details to Any Home)
