Maureen from Old House Web gave me a heads up on this great project in collaboration with Matt Grocof from Greenovation TV. If you're unfamiliar with Old House Web, as I was, the site supports the restoration of old homes with forums, tips and articles to help homeowners restore their old home. I fully agree that the greenest approach is to make use of what we already have...just make sure that what you're using for the restoration is non-toxic and sustainable too, and that you've paid due diligence to the potentially hazardous materials in old homes such as asbestos. You'll be left with your own peice of history, with more charm than you'll ever get building new...don't worry, you'll learn to love the creak in the stairs! I've inlcuded Matt's intro video...visit the website for more detailed videos!
