NHC: Table of Contents

This is how I will be setting up this Blog-vetted handbook.     If you see a section that I have omitted or have any other structural suggestions, let me know.        If there is a particular challenge when dealing with your old house that needs to be covered, let me know also.     This Table of Contents is certainly not the final word and I would be pleased to hear from any readers.

My postings will not be methodical – if I get one of these chapters done ahead of time, it will go through for all to critique.       Diagrams and pictures may be missing or have to be changed or modified later since I will have to either have them custom-made or get permission for re-use.

The Preservation Trust has already done seminars, instructional videos and workshops and is hopefully planning many more.       How sweet it would be to have this as a hands-on back up as they work to alleviate the challenge of historic renovation.

  1. YEAT boy says:

    Can I suggest a section on energy efficiency for older homes? Insulation, heating, etc. As energy cost rise, this will be a huge driver for renovations – many done poorly.

  2. Talk about leaving the barn door wide open – that’s one of the biggest sections to cover!

    THANK YOU YEAT boy!
