On the fence about buying Restoring Your Historic House?
Here’s what readers are saying:
“This exquisite book is both a coffee-table art book as well as an in-depth tutorial that answers any question you may have had about houses….date, style and period identification, key elements and features – both interior and exterior, information on all aspects of a house, including the systems within from rooftop to basement. Over 700 pages of practical information is presented in a visually pleasing style without being overly academic.”
“This is by far the most comprehensive renovation book that I have ever begun to read. This tome is packed from beginning to end with thoughtful knowledge concerning architecture and historic renovation. Renovaters are not the only ones who would benefit from this book. Realtors, contractors and architecture enthusiasts could all ‘up their game’ with a little enjoyable studying. The photography is beautiful and the text is intelligent. After halfheartedly thumbing through dozens of designer type reno books I have discovered the definitive volume.”
“The book is extraordinary! The detail and scope leave not a stone unturned. Talk about comprehensive! … The Resource Chapter is particularly valuable — if only I had something like that 40 years ago — so much time would have been saved.”
The 720-page hardcover book is available online and in bookstores nationwide. Signed copies can be ordered directly from the author at YourHistoricHouse.com.
If your local bookstore doesn’t carry the book, please ask them to contact their rep at W.W. Norton to order it.
