Since its first occupation in 1800 by President Adams and his family, the White House has undergone major re-decorations, renovations, and restorations. During the presidency of Theodore Roosevelt in 1900, it was discovered that the house was actually dangerously unsound.

This government document, which few Americans have ever seen, describes the restoration, the costs, the timeline, and the history of the original construction. Details offered by the firm in charge of the restoration include:

"In connection with the elevator it is interesting to note that a part of the oak woodwork in the new elevator-car was made from roof trusses of the Old South Church in Boston, which in its day sheltered the Boston Tea Party."

Even more valuable are 36 of the hundreds of photos taken during the restoration included in this volume.

For the first time ever, this long-out-of-print book is available as an affordable, well-formatted book for e-readers and smartphones.
