This book, written in 2006 by staff from the Wabash Trust, is a complete guide to the entire process of restoring an historic building, whether it is a large, commercial structure or a small bungalow.
Detailed recommendations, including hundreds of graphics, are given from the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Division of Historic Preservation and Archaeology, tailored to Indiana and the Lafayette area specifically on accepted styles, materials, and construction. This book, like none before it, is a comprehensive reference that bridges principle and practice for those in the Lafayette community seeking to better their homes, their neighborhoods, and their city through proper historic restoration.
Bound copies of the book are available at the Trust office at $25.00 each for Trust members and $35.00 each for non-members.
