5.0 out of 5 stars This is a fab book & can save you thousands!

5.0 out of 5 stars Review of Old House Handbook, 24 Oct 2011
This review is from: Old House Handbook: A Practical Guide to Care and Repair (Hardcover)
This is a really useful book for anyone who is considering renovating an old building. The text and accompanying photos and schematic plans are very comprehensive, even if you do not have a lot of building/renovation experience.

I purchased this book for my son's fiancée to add to her Christmas present. She was absolutely delighted and enthusiastic about it. They are about to renovate an old city house and the book has come very handy indeed.
I am certain that the enjoyment to be had from this book will be a lasting one. A happy choice of gift.
