Comprehensive overview of old building care and repair.
22 December 2018
Old House Handbook, a practical guide to care and repair, by Roger Hunt & Marianne Suhr, in association with The Society For The Protection Of Ancient Buildings, is a comprehensive guide to the distinguishing features of old buildings. From the roof to the foundations, it explains structure, deterioration and sympathetic repair, and gives a good overview of the most common problems and how to tackle them. In my opinion, this is a very useful book for reference and instruction.
