Caring for Old Houses
Available in Stock
Many people dream of owning an elegant Georgian terrace house or picturesque thatched cottage, but looking after historic buildings can be a daunting task. This practical handbook clearly explains everything you need to know. After outlining the building and conservation regulations and the financial aid available, it describes how to undertake repairs and maintenance from cellar to rafters in a sympathetic, period-appropriate manner, including fire precautions for thatched roofs. First published as Care for Old Houses (1984), but revised and updated.
