If you own an old house, The Compete Australian Old House Catalogue will save you time, money and effort. Thanks to this book, finding the products, materials, skills and services needed to care for and restore your old house - from the front fence to the chimney pots - is now a simple matter.

Ian Evans has collected the names of companies and people who can help you return your house to its original appearance and condition. Some 750 entries list the names of suppliers throughout Australia who specialise in every aspect of building restoration. For the first time, entries include e-mail and website addresses where these are available.

Each chapter opens with introductory text which provides concise background information on the subject, drawn from Ian Evans's research into old Australian houses. Practical advice on many aspects of building conservation is combined with authoritative historical information, creating a unique and fascinating blend.

The illustrations consist of a selection from old and new building catalogues, together with a wealth of archival and modern photographs. This is a book which belongs in every old house throughout the length and breadth of Australia.
