The definitive illustrated layman's guide to buying, renovating, and maintaining an antique house . . . now back in print in a thoroughly redesigned edition. Since it's first publication in 1980, The Old-House Journal Compendium has been the guide to have at hand for anyone looking to buy, restore, or maintain an old house. This new edition combines the solid, detailed advice that made The Old-House Journal newsletter famous, now in an up-to-date, easy-to-use format. With more than 800 black and white illustrations, an index of relevant terms, and easy-to-follow text, this how-to reference provides sound and encouraging instructions for all at-home renovators. Accessibly organized into chapters that correspond to the parts of a house The Old-House Journal Compendium covers roofs, windows, wiring, plumbing, plastering, staircases, floors, painting, chimneys, fireplaces, stoves, moldings, wood-work, shutters, kitchens, bathrooms, as well as period design and decoration, and even exterior design elements such as fountains, landscaping, and fences.
