Amazon.com Review

For home improvements and renovations on houses of a certain age, no publication can beat This Old House magazine. Based on the same themes and philosophy as the PBS series, this publication takes you through every step of renovating older homes, from replacing damaged flooring in Colonial saltboxes to upgrading 50-year-old split-level family homes for a fresh and modern look.

Like the craftsman magazines from the early twentieth century, This Old House magazine focuses on making your home, landscaping, décor, and furnishings blend into a harmonious whole. You'll find columns detailing how to repurpose beautiful old trim or how to choose the perfect stove for your lifestyle. Homes in the process of renovation are used as demonstration projects for your own home.

This Old House magazine is best for the do-it-yourselfer looking for the least expensive ways to create quality and beauty. Every issue gives you dozens of ideas for upgrading your home on the cheap. Carefully photographed step-by-step articles help you go through what seem to be complex projects easily, even if you've never done the process before. Tips on the best ways to do renovation tasks keep you from making mistakes. When you really need an expert to get the job done, This Old House tells you how to find great contractors.

If you have an older home you're planning on remodeling, This Old House magazine is an invaluable resource. You'll read every issue cover to cover.

3.0 out of 5 stars Read the publisher's statement carefully February 15, 2002
Subscription Term Name:1 year
If you're looking for d.i.y. information on maintenance and minor repairs for your old house, skip this one. As the publisher says, it's pretty much all about major restorations by professionals, and there's very little the average homeowner could even participate in, let alone do on his or her own. If you want to learn how an architect chooses historically correct replacement windows for your old ones that stick, buy "This Old House." If you just want to know how to get the old ones unstuck, move on to "Family Handyman."

4.0 out of 5 stars Resource Material November 1, 2002
Subscription Term Name:1 year
If you are a fan of This Old House, then you probably want to get this magazine. If you have been watching the show for a long time (who hasn't?) then you will feel like you are reading a magazine about family, as there is usually something in each issue from each of the show's participants.
The magazine offers more in-depth information about the projects you see on television. A big reason to get the magazine is to learn more about the materials used in the projects and where you can get them. In addition, there are projects covered in the magazine which are not done on the television series.
While the magazine, in my opinion, is a bit short on exact specifics, or "how-to's," one has to keep in mind that a lot of the attitude of the show seems to be "use a professional." While I can understand doing that if you have the financial resources, it just isn't always practical. Still, if you want to be informed when you do call the professionals, this is one way to do it.

4.0 out of 5 stars perfect gift for TOH fans October 27, 2001
Subscription Term Name:1 year
This is a magazine for old house lovers -- people who like the style of an older home, for whom the things that break and the things that creak inspire renovation not cursing.

My wife and I live in our second old house, and have watched the TV show since before our first. For us pragmatic Norm the woodworker, blow-dried Steve the host, and spendthrift Richard the plumbing/HVAC guy are like family. This magazine provides occasional coverage of the project house you see on PBS which is a bonus for fans. But its main focus is to show you how you can fix up your own old house.

It is a great source of ideas, inspiration, and the vendors who can sell you what you'll need. Got an old house and the money and patience for renovation? If you do, get this magazine.

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother with this one. August 21, 2005
Subscription Term Name:1 year
This is a magazine for paid product-placement in articles, tons of ads, and so-so articles. You are paying for the name, and getting much less in return.

I HIGHLY recommend Fine Homebuilding instead of This Old House. You will not only see fabulous new and old construction, but actually take something away from it (that is the point behind magazines, right?) A magazine that actually saved me money!

I'm cancelling my subscription to T.O.H. and adding another year onto my Fine Homebuilding subscription. It's money well spent.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not much there. May 16, 2003
Subscription Term Name:1 year
This Old House is published, naturally enough, as an adjunct to the popular PBS show, but it doesn't really offer much by itself. It's mostly a read-and-toss sort of magazine. If you're really interested in home building and remodeling, there are two far superior magazines: Fine Homebuilding and Old Home Journal. Each of them offers far more depth and useful information than This Old House, not to mention better photography and a wider range of topics. Fine Homebuilding in particular is a magazine you'll want to keep- and most readers do.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lots of Fluff...not much Stuff June 23, 2003
By J. Roy
Subscription Term Name:1 year
This magazine has lots of nice pictures.....but lacks the indepth articles that Fine Homebuilding or Fine Woodworking offers. Its basically a promotional of the long running tv series, and will disapoint anyone above a novice in construction.

5.0 out of 5 stars completely on target July 9, 2009
By magpub
Subscription Term Name:1 year
With the redesign, the magazine now captures the essence of the TV show and extends it into useful information every homeowner can use. Some of the articles focus on DIY-related projects, some help you when you want to work with professionals - all are perfectly suited for me and my wife. I now have a library of the mags which I save for future reference (honey do lists) although I also use their web site (which is integrated into the magazine each month). Great read; great resource.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great resource October 30, 2001
Subscription Term Name:1 year
TOH Magazine is a great resource for those who are restoring their vintage homes. It includes many how to guides and readers can send in their questions to Norm. His answers are not always the easy way, but the best way! I also find many of the pictures are good ways to come up with ideas that you would have never thought of for your newly recreated space. All in all, it is one of the best home and garden magazines on the market!
