Product Overview

Many of the stately greystones that line Chicago''s streets and boulevards have fallen into disrepair, but there is now a movement afoot to renovate these beautiful historic structures. Three experts in the field of Chicago housing and architecture now offer an accessible guide to properly renovating the Chicago greystone.
In clear and comprehensive chapters, the authors explain the technical aspects of inspecting, maintaining, and restoring a greystone home. They outline four levels of building restoration conditions--Maintainer, Fixer-Upper, Rehabber, and Total Gut--and chart the step-by-step renovation procedures for each level of restoration. The book effectively educates greystone owners on restoration methods that are cost-effective, energy-efficient, financially sustainable, and historically aware.""
