This site offers “Old-House Community and Know-How, Restoration Advice, and Home Improvement,” so if you own an old house, or are thinking of buying and renovating one, this site could be a very handy resource.

I live in a house built originally at the end of the 1800’s or the beginning of the 1900’s. Let me tell you it’s a mess. Someone thought that it would be a great idea to add rooms on in odd areas and to change a lot of the architecture of the house itself. Then someone had the bright idea to make it into a duplex. I didn’t know much about old houses myself, but I grew up with my daddy doing repairs on wherever we lived at the time. So I can do some repair work myself, but this house is a challenge. It makes you want to throw your hands in the air and scream sometimes. So I went looking on the web for help and found this site. Let me tell you it has come in so handy that it is book marked on both of the computers in the house for easy access.

I find the Do-It-Yourself Knowledge Database to be a priceless tool to have. You can search the database by topic or you can go to the top of the page and use the search engine to find the information you are looking for.

On the main page you’ll notice that there is a list of top 10 most searched for items. Which all seem to be common problems people run across in older houses. If you don’t find what you are looking for there, use the search engine and find it that way.

There are excellent forums for help on this site. Just click on the Old-House Friends Forums. You can go into general discussion or you can choose a forum based on the age of your house. Pre 1900’s, or Post 1900’s, or you can choose the Where Can I Find forum, which will help you find the information you need and are looking for.

This site is a renovator’s dream helper.
