Living In The Past

Do you own an old or historic house?

Do you worry about drafty windows, lead paint, cracked plaster and a slew of other things you just don’t understand about your house?

Living-in-the-Past-BestsellerI’ve been there too! When my wife and I bought our 1929 Bungalow I felt overwhelmed trying to fix it up. I knew I wanted to keep its character rich historic features like wood windows, plaster walls, and hardwood floors, but I didn’t have a clue how to work with these things.

I tried and after screwing things up I watched a couple YouTube videos and tried again. Still no luck!

I loved this old house too much to let a contractor come in and rip out the elements I loved, so I went to work studying everything I could about old house construction.

After that I went to school at Yestermorrow Design/Build School in Vermont to study Historic Preservation and eventually opened my own historic restoration company.

I’ve worked on everything from the smallest cottage to historic landmark train stations so when it comes to old buildings I know what the potential pitfalls are and how to walk you through the whole process.

You may be thinking: “Can I really do this work myself?”

The answer is YES!

Old houses are surprisingly simple once you know how. There are no complicated elements like in new construction today. Windows don’t have hard to handle gaskets. They are wood, putty and glass.

Historic buildings are built simply and effectively and once you learn a few things you can do most of this work yourself. I promise!
