This Old House Magazine

This Old House Magazine
[Periodical This]

If you like the tv show, you'll probably like the magazine. It has before and after renovation projects, homeowner tips, new products for homes, and step by step DIY projects. Even if you don't own a house, it's still fun to look at the restoration projects similar to the ones on the tv show. One of my favorite part of each issue is 'Save this old house'. They have a brief history of an old house, typically abandoned and it dire need of repairs, to save from demolition and renovated to it's former glory. They list the price, which is minimal and often free (as long as you move it off it's current lot), and tell reader what needs done to it. It's interesting to think about the history of those houses and their future potential. I think that if you appreciate the history of old homes, or own a home and are looking for homeowner tips, you'd like this magazine. If you checkout the This Old House webpage, you can actually watch current and past episodes of the show. -- recommended by Kristen A. - Gere Branch Library [ See Kristen's Reviewer Profile ]
