There is a romance to owning an older home - the wonderful satisfaction of living in a house with character while adding personal touches and modern comforts. REVIVING YOUR HOUSE tells you how to make any home livable and lovely without breaking the bank. It details all the problems you might encounter, such as peeling paint, wet or low-ceilinged basements, sagging porches and roofs, crumbling masonry and chimneys, and old door and window casements that stick in the summer and leak in the winter. Author Alan Dan Orme offers inexpensive solutions in non-technical, easy-to-understand language. He pays particular attention to detail, ensuring that your improvements will blend in with the original materials and designs of your home.
