This Old Building

A Guide To Buying, Restoring, and Managing Historic Commercial Property

Authored by Robert K. Hall

Have you ever dreamed of buying and fixing up an old building? It's easier than you may think! There are many fine old buildings in our towns and cities just waiting for the right owner to bring them back to life - before it's too late.

THIS OLD BUILDING is the essential guide for first-time restorers and a must-read for anyone who cares about the future of our American cities. Read this book, and you'll no longer see the derelict buildings in your downtown as teardown candidates, but as valuable heritage property well worth our time and effort to preserve. Robert Hall shares entertaining stories and trade secrets from decades of first-hand experience restoring old commercial buildings. Hall demonstrates how to make these old timers thrive another hundred years, while also earning a healthy profit for the owner. Readers may be surprised to learn that investing in historic commercial property is more profitable than residential real estate - when you follow the wise advice in this book. Hall's practical guidelines, do-it-yourself tips, and before-and-after photographs of his projects give you everything you will need to make your old building restoration a success.
