This Old House – July/August 2007 – Annual Kitchen and Bath Special

This issue of This Old House is another good one, filled with solid articles on kitchens and baths as well as a handful of other relevant topics. The only drawback is that there is very little discussion of tools of any sort.

The centerpiece of the kitchens portion of the magazine is an analysis of three renovations, each done on a different budget. The article has nice cost breakdowns and some good advice (steer clear of trends). There is also a piece on what can go wrong during a kitchen remodel and how not to let those problems happen to you.

As for the baths part of the magazine, there is an article on concrete countertops, one on how to tile a vintage bath, and a particularly cool one on outdoor showers.

Other topics covered in this issue include ceiling fans, irrigation gear, and wireless monitoring systems.

Keep reading to see what tools were covered in this issue.

The issue is very light in the tool department, with really only two articles on the topic, both about levels. The first one is a general primer on the tool, it pretty much just shows all the different types of levels out there, and the second one is about how to make sure that your level is accurate.

We would have liked more tool coverage, but aside from that, this is yet another issue of This Old House that is jammed with handy information for the renovation-minded homeowner.
