If you’re looking for a holiday gift for a do-it-yourselfer, an owner of an old house or barn, or simply someone who loves New Hampshire’s historic buildings, the New Hampshire Preservation Alliance offers a hassle-free shopping option.
Written by historic barn experts John C. Porter and Francis E. Gilman, a new book Preserving Old Barns combines practical, hands-on advice for repairing barns, with color photography, descriptions of barn preservation techniques and detailed drawings of barn joinery. At nearly twice the length of its original edition, the book offers updated techniques for repairing barns, as well as descriptions of how barn styles have evolved to suit different agricultural needs and how barns can be adapted for alternative uses while maintaining their historic integrity. A must-have for any barn fan on your list.
Our Window Weatherization Kit includes everything to tighten up your drafty wood windows while preserving their historic charm. On the other hand, a few jars of our new private label Preservation Alliance Preserves, in partnership with Apple Hill Farm, will sweeten your favorite preservationist’s toast or sandwich.
