Preserve the original charm of any outbuilding while making it usable again!

From the foundation up, from the walls in, and from the roof down, craftsman Nick Engler shows you how to save money, history, and architecture when you renovate or restore, rather than replace, your barn, shed, or outbuilding. You'll learn how to square and strengthen the structure, repair or replace the roofing and siding, enlarge and modify the buidling, install new windows and doors, and add electricity and plumbing. Engler also includes practical information on how to evaluate an old structure in light of current building codes.

Nick Engler is the author of more than 50 books on home and woodworking how-to, several of which have more than a million copies in print. He has renovated three log cabins, several covered bridges, and more barns than he can count. A licensed pilot, Engler recently built and flew an exact replica of the 1902 Wright Brothers Glider.
