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.
