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 who shared their first-hand experience with Mike Litchfield as he interviewed and photographed them on job sites across North America.

As a founding editor of Fine Homebuilding magazine, the author of 16 acclaimed books, and a home renovator himself, Litchfield was able to record lifetimes of practical, field-tested solutions and trade secrets from the cream of the crop–the remodeling pros that other pros admire.

It is the perfect companion volume to Restoring Your Historic House. In the Introduction to that book, Scott T. Hanson wrote: “The one basic guide to the renovation of houses that I most recommend owning is Renovation by Michael Litchfield. First published in 1982, the book is now in its fifth edition and remains the most complete and understandable basic text on the subject.” While not specifically addressing historic houses, it provides an excellent starting point with Restoring Your Historic House providing specific information for historic houses.

Both first-time renovators and professionals who want to supplement their knowledge of specific trades will find Renovation 5th Edition invaluable. Renovation 5 reflects the new realities of planning carefully, spending wisely, maximizing space and building durably. Its 656 pages contain extensively revised chapters on planning; doors, windows and skylights; electrical wiring; structural carpentry; masonry and foundations. Its illustrations are crisp and informative and its 1,000+ photos were selected from more than 45,000 that the author has taken over the years.

This classic work covers renovation from start to finish. Best of all, Renovation 5 is written in a down-to-earth conversational style that is clear and easy to understand. Written with a sharp wit and a dry sense of humor, Renovation 5 is not only immensely useful, but great fun to read.
