“There have been many good books over the years about restoring old houses but they become outdated; construction and preservation technology are ever evolving. New approaches to old houses are essential and Scott Hanson ‘s book, Restoring Your Historic House, is an essential volume.”~ Nineteenth Century Magazine, Spring 2020,
Victorian Society in America
“Restoring Your Historic House covers a wide range of projects and house styles, delivering specific and useful information while explaining the why-to along with the how-to.”~ Patricia Poore, editor in chief
and former owner, Old House Journal.
“Using hundreds of photos and illustrations and actual project examples, Scott Hanson shares his expertise on ways you can update a historic house while respecting its characteristic architectural features — the very details that attracted you to the house in the first place.”~ Gordon H. Bock, architectural historian, educator,
and co-author of “The Vintage House.”
Restoring Your Historic House is an impressive and comprehensive guide for all those who consider it a pleasure and a privilege to own and preserve a beautiful survivor from the past and to pass it onward to the next generation for enjoyment and shelter.”~ George O. Siekkinen, Jr, former Senior Architect,
National Trust for Historic Preservation.
