This Old House - May 2007 - Review

tohmay2007.jpgWe apologize for being late in reviewing May's This Old House. Our excuse is that it’s, well, an altogether forgettable issue. It’s been on the coffee table for a while now, and after the first flip through, we’ve had very little interest in picking it up again.

There’s a pretty solid article about organic lawn care and a nice “How it Works” on solar hot water systems, but aside from those, the issue is pretty sub-standard fare. There’s a piece on different deck styles (each with a superhero-gone-wrong name; The Multi-Tasker, The Great Equalizer, and The Privacy Preserver), one on adding a cobblestone apron at the end of a driveway (Zzzzzz), and four pages dedicated to an unbearable “he said/she said” article about the renovation process.

All in all, this issue of This Old House is worth flipping through at the bookstore and if any articles catch your eye, go ahead and pick it up, but it’s not worth a faith purchase. With spring arriving full-swing, and everyone gearing up for a summer's worth of projects, we expected better.
