About the author
The authors begins with an overview of wooden houses, their styles and designs from 1600 through the early 20th century. They also cover interiors, exteriors, finishes and more. There are many 'before' photos of architectural details found on roofs, exterior walls, floors and interior trim. The authors offer sound advice on everything from historical research and contracting the job to eliminating carpenter ants. An extremely practical and useful volume.
