There is an old saying that says, "Those who don't learn from the past are doomed to repeat it." However, homeowners who claim to have a love of historic homes (or at least for new ones inspired by them) still haven't learned some of the basic design lessons from the past that may be gleaned from our intact examples of historic houses. Along Bungalow Lines teaches those useful lessons through specific examples gathered from locations across the country. With sound guidance concerning the restoration or renovation of historic homes, this book will be sure to inspire homeowners. With plentiful and valuable answers to common questions, suggestions for unexpected shortcuts, or solutions to problems that apply to a variety of design-challenged situations, homeowners can fulfill their dreams of restoring a historic home to its original splendor, or just creating a historic-looking home that is true to the details of the past. Author Paul Duchscherer and photographer Linda Svendson team up again to produce a comprehensive book with stunning photography and informative text, bringing Arts & Crafts style and architecture to life.
