Description
This Old House, companion volume to the Emmy award-winning PBS television series of the same name, is a comprehensive guide for homeowners and first-time buyers who want solid advice on how to understand, plan, and manage a major overhaul of their older house, or any of its rooms (realtors call it "rehabbing"), using both professional help and their own time and effort. Author and TV host Bob Vila, a Boston area builder and developer who has been through it all many times before, cheerfully steers the uninitiated through the entire rehabilitation process, using as his object lesson a 100-year-old Massachusetts house [6 Percival Street, Dorchester] transformed during thirteen weeks of programming from a tired old wreck into a functionally modern Victorian beauty.
