useful and enjoyable,
This review is from: The Victorian House Manual (Hardcover)
The roof on my 1880s house recently started leaking and I've got several quotes for repairing it. So I was pleased to find this house manual that shows the causes and remedies to typical problems found in victorian/edwardian houses.
The manual has quite a lot of detail and helped us get to grips with the work required and the resulting dampness to some ceilings and walls etc. But whats surpsrising is how enjhoyable this book is to read / browse with interesting historical stuff about how they were built and loads of nice colour photos! a massive improvemnt on the old black and white haynes motorbike manuals I used to buy years ago. highly recommended.
