Publisher Comments:

"A valuable resource for anyone with a house that needs work". — Paul Spring, Associate Editor of Fine Homebuilding. For every single item in your home — roof, windows, doors, skylights, brickwork, and so on — there are probably hundreds of renovation guides, but you want to spend your money on renovating, not on twenty different books. Try this updated, expanded second edition, the definitive one-volume work on successful home rehabilitation — almost 600 pages of on-site information. Every topic is covered asphalt shingles, corners and splashboards, bolsterlug joists, and many more — in intricate detail, with the help and insight of carpenters, electricians, plumbers, masons, engineers, painters, architects, energy consultants, and the like. All the information is specific, right down to the head of a nail. Problems you may encounter are given their due, and the text follows actual renovations, guaranteeing that you're always aware of the next step. Over 1000 striking photographs and easy-to-understand illustrations reveal technical tips and practical trade secrets — and capture the beauty of renovated homes across America.

Synopsis:

“A classic in the first edition, a masterpiece in the second, this outstanding guide is the last word in renovation. In nearly 600 pages of text, accompanied by 1,000 illustrations, all systems used in the home are covered in detail. Essential.”—Library Journal. “The opening chapter—a frank look at what makes an older home ‘worth it—is alone worth the cost of the book.”—Atlanta Journal Constitution.

We just bought a Cape Cod-style house built in 1850, and love this book!
