Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Renovate villas is the first in a new series that will cover the renovation of houses from different eras. Upcoming books will cover bungalows, art deco houses, 1940's and 1950's homes (including the iconic state house) and 1970's houses. There are good books available on house style and history, and the new BRANZ books do not seek to replicate those. Ours are a technical resource. The villas book is well illustrated with crystal clear drawings showing typical construction methods for framing, roofing, windows and interior building elements. The workings of double hung sash windows alone are shown in six drawings and two photographs. Typical building materials and construction methods, including match lining, lath and plaster, pressed metal and moulded timbers are explained. Common problems are outlined, with options given on the appropriate repair or renovation.

"Funded by BRANZ"--T.p. verso.

Includes bibliographical references (p. 129).
