The Pocket Renovator: An Illustrated Guide to the Language of Renovation and Home Improvement
The Pocket Renovator picks up where The Pocket Decorator left off, demystifying the language of home improvement.
Chapters explore the most complex issues facing most home buyers and renovators: construction and renovation, kitchens and bathrooms, space and stair configurations, and vital systems in the home, as well as appendices covering “green” design, mortgage terminology, and real estate terminology. From structural basics to hardware finishes, from adding or removing walls to installing a pressed tin ceiling, from choosing appliances and countertop materials to lighting, heating and cooling systems and floor plans, The Pocket Renovator is the perfect gift for anyone buying or renovating a home.
The contents are grouped by subject matter, allowing for easy perusal.
