This Old House - Jan/Feb 2008

toh_jan_feb08.jpgWe gave up reviewing magazines a while back because you guys just weren't all that into it. But we still held out that we'd review the occasional issue if there was something worth writing about. Well this month's This Old House is worth writing about. It's actually the best issue of theirs that we've picked up in a long, long time.

Lately it seems that their content has been getting pretty fluffy with too many of those awful articles on "how you and your spouse can survive a renovation." We say leave those to the pages of Glamour and give us info on tools, building materials, and workable ideas for our own renovations. This issue has all that and more. There's an article on crown molding, there's one on converting a guest bedroom into a large bath, also ones on steam showers, replacement windows, and a great router primer (written by or pal Harry Sawyers from The Hardware Aisle). And the list goes on and on.

We're not exactly sure why this issue is such a home run, but it is. Every single article is worth reading. Here's to hoping they'll be writing issues like this one all year long. Check out the table of contents here.
