Barbara Jacobs
Homeowners who have been entranced by the "This Old House" PBS TV series and have also fallen in love with some old manse should be aware that restoration will take years, not months. That is the underlying message of this manual written by two Londoners. Surprisingly, it's devoid of Briticisms, so American do-it-yourselfers will have no difficulties in following its precepts and instructions. However, this is not truly a how-to manual: most of the restorative chores--tuck-pointing, replacing glass, and so on--demand either a high level of experience or professional knowledge. Nonetheless, it will be a great help to those for whom it is intended.
