Architectural SalvageIn this internet age, there is very little that you can’t find on YouTube so I have put together a list of old house restoration videos, arranged by skill/trade for you to view. Whether you plan to do a project yourself, or hire a professional tradesperson, it is wise to know something about what to expect & what you should expect. Hopefully, the people you hire are always looking to improve their knowledge & will be willing to watch these old house restoration videos to expand their skills.

The people who have made these videos are at the tops of their fields. They are experienced & skilled not only in their trades but also are good communicators & have stellar reputations for their abilities to teach others to do the work. They are also very nice people so their videos are pleasant & easy to watch. In fact, I watch them when I’ve had a bad day just to chill!

I also recommend that you watch the videos in SAFETY FIRST!!!!!!

I’m not going to describe the videos individually because most of the titles explain the content. Just click & find out!

ARCHITECTURAL SALVAGE VIDEOS

The terrible tragedy is that old buildings will be demolished, by the short-sighted, by the greedy & the ignorant. We are fortunate that there are people who come in & save the beautiful bits & pieces & offer them to us. Even if you are not involved in a project for which you might need their wares, a visit makes an interesting field, or even a road trip!
