For any house-proud owner of a Victorian property this book represents a unique and invaluable resource. Packed with information about Victorian architectural ideas, it includes a wealth of practical advice about the maintenance and conservation of Victorian homes. Part One provides a concise overview of the development of the Victorian house, the wide range of architectural styles that came in and out of fashion over the period, and the lifestyles of the original owners the houses were designed to accommodate. Throughout, the emphasis is on family houses of various sizes rather than the great houses of the aristocracy, which are discussed only in relation to their influence on contemporary builders and architects. Part Two discusses structures and materials, covering brickwork, stone, renders and stuccos, roofs, woodwork, windows and doors, ironwork, and conservatories. In each case there is comprehensive advice on symptoms of trouble, techniques for preservation and restoration, and the correct choice of materials. Part Three covers services—fireplaces and chimneys, lighting, kitchens and bathrooms—all subjects requiring particular sensitivity to achieve a satisfactory compromise between preserving the spirit of the original building and meeting modern standards of comfort and convenience. Part Four examines all aspects of interior decoration, including plasterwork, decorative tiles, paint colors and finishes, wall coverings, curtains and blinds, and floor coverings. The book is completed by lists of further reading, places to visit, and useful addresses, including those of specialist suppliers and contractors, and sources of more detailed information and advice.

Invaluable for all those who own, or are interested in, houses that were built between about 1840 and 1914, this informative aims to help readers to become responsible custodians of such properties and focuses on how to retain and preserve the fabric of the existing house in a sustainable way, thus allowing more of the past to be preserved. The author provides practical advice on how to care for such houses in the least wasteful way, advice that may save the owner money and time, and also enhance the value of the property by retaining its period appeal. This book provides a guided tour of all the elements of the house and garden from the roof and chimneys, walls, ceilings, doors, and windows, down to coalholes, gates, railings, paths, and boot scrapers. It explains the contemporary thinking concerning the care and maintenance of houses of this period, and highlights some of the essential differences between modern and traditional building practices. This knowledge will help owners to understand and avoid misfortunes such as prematurely decaying joinery, damp walls, and rotting timber, since Victorian and Edwardian houses can rely on entirely different methods of controlling damp and movement to those used in modern constructions.
