The November issue of Old House Journal has arrived and I am thrilled to find “Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners” prominently mentioned on the Editor’s Page! Thank You, Old House Journal!

“Surely OHJ readers are the natural audience for this book, which shares our preservation approach. It posits that saving such character-defining features as windows and rooflines, mouldings and woodwork should be a given, even as we renovated for energy efficiency, comfort, and modern life.
The book is part “Vintage Houses” by Hewitt and Bock, part McAlester’s “Field Guide,” and several parts early Old-House-Journal, with a credible amount of true grit in the mix. A lot of information goes into 712 pages! Hanson, a preservation consultant who has restored his own historic house, covers a wide range of projects and house styles, always explaining the why-to along with the how-to. It’s not a picture book; photos are abundant but small and always serve a point made in the text.”
OHJ was my go-to source for good preservation information and inspiration early in my career and it is still a great resource for old house restorers and lovers.
The award-winning and best-selling hardcover book is available in bookstores and from online retailers.
