Anyone who wants to learn basic living skills-the kind employed by our forefathers-and adapt them for a better life in the twenty-first century need look no further than this eminently useful, full-color guide. Countless readers have turned to Back to Basics for inspiration and instruction, escaping to an era before power saws and fast-food restaurants and rediscovering the pleasures and challenges of a healthier, greener, and more self-sufficient lifestyle. Now newly updated, the hundreds of projects, step-by-step sequences, photographs, charts, and illustrations in Back to Basics will help you dye your own wool with plant pigments, graft trees, raise chickens, craft a hutch table with hand tools, and make treats such as blueberry peach jam and cheddar cheese. The truly ambitious will find instructions on how to build a log cabin or an adobe brick homestead. More than just practical advice, this is also a book for dreamers-even if you live in a city apartment, you will find your imagination sparked, and there's no reason why you can't, for example, make a loom and weave a rag rug. Complete with tips for old-fashioned fun (square dancing calls, homemade toys, and kayaking tips), this may be the most thorough book on voluntary simplicity available.

The Beginner Renovator: A Guide to the Repair and Alteration of Houses in Australia, Edward Mundie
20 The Beginner Renovator: A Guide to the Repair and Alteration of Houses in Australia
Edward Mundie Australia Hyland House 1987 0947062114 / 9780947062118 Softcover New Book 24.0 x 18.4 x 1.9 cm 
Thinking of Renovating? Could we really do it ourselves? Is there a place where we can find out about the tools we'll need and how to use them? Something that tells us what to do and where we might go wrong? There must be tricks in buying - places to go for things and ways to save? Could we get some sort of a guide to costs for the various building items? Suppose we want to buy a house to do up, wouldn't we need a good long list of the good things and the bad things to look out for? And wouldn't it be a help to know the cost and what work has to be done in all the fixing up? And if in the end we decide to get someone to do the work for us, wouldn't nit be a good idea to know what that person is meant to be doing? All this, and much more, can be found in The Beginner Renovator! It starts with the basics - the drains and the foundations - going on to windows and doors (no more squeaks), plastering and painting and for the more adventurous, building an inner wall or an extension. Separate chapters are devoted to the kitchen and bathroom. 244 pages.
