John Leeke's Historic HomeWorks™

As an historic building specialist, John Leeke has been helping owners, tradespeople, contractors and architects understand and maintain their historic buildings for 20 years. He has been restoring historic buildings in New England for over 35 years and still spends a good part of his time "with hammer in hand".

He has written on restoration and preservation topics for Old-House Journal magazine, Fine Homebuilding, The Journal of Light Construction and other national publications as well as his own Practical Restoration Reports.

We have reprinted here on our website John Leeke's Historic HomeWorks™ Question and Answer column on the maintenance and preservation of historic (and just plain old) buildings. A wide variety of topics are covered.
