This is how crofts and farms are renovated
The house bible for building custodians! The book tells an easy-to-understand story in words and pictures about how to care for and repair an old house.
Back text: A long-lived and beloved classic now comes in long-awaited revised form. How farmhouses & farms are renovated is the ultimate handbook for anyone dealing with old houses and who wants to renovate with a gentle hand and with old, traditional methods. The book has been around since the 1970s and has been gradually expanded to become a real bible for anyone interested in building maintenance. Over the years it has been continuously updated, and this edition has also been revised with the latest findings. The book clearly tells in text and pictures how to care for and renovate an old house. It goes through the house from foundation to roof, detail by detail, and also deals with old-time gardens. No special knowledge is required to follow the book's instructions and advice. A recurring theme is: only make the most necessary repairs and, if possible, use the same materials and construction techniques as when the house was built. Then you don't risk destroying a beautiful house, worn by the ravages of time but with old unique details preserved.
