This informative book is invaluable for all those who own, or are interested in, houses that were built between about 1840 and 1914. It aims to help readers to become responsible custodians of such properties and focuses on how to retain and preserve the fabric of the existing house in a sustainable way, thus allowing more of the past to be preserved. The author provides practical advice on how to care for such houses in the least wasteful way, advice that may save the owner money and time, and also enhance the value of the property by retaining its period appeal.
