Affairs with Old Houses

This is a great book!  Edited by Pat Lotz and available from the Heritage Trust of Nova Scotia bookstore ( ) for $19.95.  Many of the drawings in the book are by my friend Greg Munn - check out his blog
About the book (from their website)...
       Affairs with Old Houses presents heritage from the perspective of a diverse and articulate group of Nova Scotian heritage home owners, who relate how they acquired and restored their old houses. The book moves beyond details of architecture, history and restoration to also reveal the relationship the owner has with the building. Sixteen houses are featured in personal accounts representing a wide range in architectural style, age, historic background and size. Included in the book is a chapter on Richmond Hill Farm, an old house in Windsor, Nova Scotia, bequeathed to Heritage Trust of Nova Scotia by the late Helen Macdonald. The book, which has a charming foreword by His Honour Lt.- Gov. J.James Kinley, is attractively illustrated with line drawings and includes a comprehensive glossary.
