    Best Book Ever on Renovation, December 13, 2012

    This review is from: Renovation 4th Edition: Completely Revised and Updated (Hardcover)
    This is a book I wished I’d had when I started building, but it is also one that’s extraordinarily useful to more experienced builders. Mike Litchfield was the original editor of Fine Homebuilding; in 1982 he published the first version of Renovation, and it’s been updated periodically, this being the latest and 4th edition. Popular Science called it “The most comprehensive single volume on renovation ever” — totally true.
    What differentiates this book from others of its ilk is that the author has gathered all this information in the field, interviewing carpenters, electricians, plumbers, and contractors, finding out what’s important, what works, what’s new. These guys love to talk about what they do well, and in this sense, the book is one of collective wisdom. It’s at the same time highly useful to professionals, but also one that’s invaluable for homeowners and people of the fixer-upper persuasion.
    The chapter “Planning Your Renovation” is completely new, reflecting the current interest in smaller projects, spending wisely, and energy efficiency. The chapter on wiring covers code changes, and tells you things like how to fish wire, install wireless switches, or replace old incandescent ceiling lights with energy-efficient LEDs.
    There’s a section on installing IKEA cabinets, tips and instructions on energy retrofits, working with paperless drywall (in wet areas), soundproofing, cutting into a concrete floor, working with PEX plumbing tubing, and installing engineered flooring. I found myself flipping through the book at random, and learning a lot.

    Great Book!, October 27, 2012

    As the general manager of a green building company, I buy a few building books each year for the company library. The books that the crew likes most tend to get pretty dog-eared and if they are really useful, they disappear altogether. I bought two copies of Renovation 3 last year to replace missing copies, so I am happy to see there is now a 4th Edition. It seems fatter and a lot of the photos are new and the electrical and windows chapters are a lot longer. I hope the crew likes it. But not too much

    This review is from: Renovation 4th Edition: Completely Revised and Updated (Hardcover)
    I’m a DIY enthusiast when it comes to home remodeling. There are constantly remodeling projects going on around my fixer upper. I’ve remodeled 3 properties in the last 10 years. At some point in that 10 year past I bought the 3rd Edition of this title. Just saw there was a 4th Edition and I couldn’t wait for it to be delivered to my door. It’s my home remodeling manual for when I need to understand the details of the job I’m working on. This book is well illustrated and very descriptive. I turn to it over and over for guidance. The full color photos are so helpful along with the text being well written and easy for someone of any skill level to follow. If you are remodeling or considering a buying a house I’d definitely add this title to your home improvement library. I find it invaluable.
