Great "History Channel" Building Show

Recommended Posts

I saw a show yesterday called "Back to the Blueprint" on the History Channel. They look at a particular historic style in each episode, going from the foundation to the roof about how they were constructed and why, and how to restore them properly. The one I saw was on Shotgun Cottages in New Orleans, and was very interesting and informative. They even discussed the specific variation of mortar mix used to account for the extra expansion / contraction due to the local climate (for some reason Kurt came to mind). I thought it was a damned good show for a historic-lovin' HI to watch. The next one is a repeat from last November (when this series actually started) on Chicago Bungalows.

Here's a link to the home page:
