Keep me well! Five cases for building maintenance. Göran Gudmunsson. 351 pages
How did it happen when a dilapidated barn, an abandoned croft, a dilapidated mansion, an uninhabitable military barracks and a smelly flat in town got new life and its soul back? Where did you start? How did you know where to look? And what was skipped?
Göran Gudmundsson's new big book is a goldmine for anyone who loves old houses with tradition and flair. Here he tells the story of five comprehensive renovation projects with widely different conditions. With great expertise, he describes the entire process – before, during and after – and shows in detail how to go about finding traces of the old, looking for renovation materials, painting and wallpapering. And not least how to relate to the different path choices that exist. Because how should you actually think about original colors and old building materials - if you are also going to live in the house? Is there right or wrong?
"Many people think that building maintenance is not for them. I want to change that. I want to show that EVERYONE - not only owners of old houses but also those who have an older apartment, who want to convert an abandoned outbuilding into a holiday home or are just generally interested in the environment and recycling - can find inspiration in the old way of building and decorating . Because if you choose to build new with old methods and with used materials, you also get the soul in the bargain.”
