The Restorer’s Library Essentials Pack is the Must-Have Combo-Pack for Historic House Restorers!
1. “Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners.” This award-winning and best-selling hardcover book by Scott T. Hanson, containing more than 2,000 color photos and drawings, does not repeat the basic information available in many standard DIY books. Instead, it shows how to adapt those DIY skills to the specialized needs of a historic house. Unlike other books about renovating old houses, this is the first that prioritizes the identification and preservation of historic, character-defining features of a house as a starting point in the process.
2. “Renovation: 5th Edition.” When it comes to home renovation, there’s no substitute for experience. “Renovation: 5th Edition” contains the collective wisdom of hundreds of remodeling contractors, architects, and tradespeople across North America who shared their first-hand experience with Mike Litchfield, a founding editor of Fine Homebuilding magazine and author of 16 books. It is the perfect companion volume to Restoring Your Historic House.
3. “A Field Guide to American Houses: The Definitive Guide to Identifying and Understanding America’s Domestic Architecture” by Virginia McAlester. The 2015 updated edition of the classic! The fully expanded, updated, and freshly designed second edition of the most comprehensive and widely acclaimed guide to domestic architecture.
The Combo-Pack is $15.00 off the cost of the books purchased separately in our shop, YourHistoricHouse.com/shop/.
