A Shingle Style Cottage Undergoing Restoration

This 1896 cottage remains in the family that has owned it since 1905. It was expanded in 1910 and remodeled in the 1960’s. Now it is being restored by the fourth generation, replacing inappropriate 1960’s windows with accurate replicas of the originals, making structural repairs, repointing the masonry with appropriate mortar, and residing the exterior with new cedar shingles.

Part Four of Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners, deals with the Exterior Envelope. The chapters in this part of the book deal with roofs, exterior walls, trim, porches, windows, and doors. The chapters includes several case studies and example projects to illustrate the text with real-world projects.

The book is now at the printer and is available for pre-order on the Target, Wal-Mart, and Barnes & Noble websites and on Amazon. Reserve your copy today! https://www.amazon.com/dp/0884484904/ref=nav_timeline_asin?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
