A Must Have For Anyone With An Old House, 19 Mar. 2009
If you only want one reference source for pretty much every aspect of manitaining old buildings, then this has to be the one.Both practical and very informative, it's the first book I've come across that has managed to convey much of the "technical" side of old house maintenance and repair in plain English. It's written for house owners rather than experts.
It's also got great photography alongside the narrative which brings much of the advice to life.
