ANTIQUE NEW ENGLAND HOMES & BARNS:
History, Restoration, and Reinterpretation
Jim DeStefano, P.E., AIA, F.SEI
• Comprehensive guide to restoring old New England homes and barns
• Every piece of an antique home is dissected, explained, and put back together
• In-depth information on how to identify architectural styles and
strategize a restoration
There is something about antique homes and their hard-working barns that
captures the imagination. Maybe it’s their pleasing proportions, maybe they
remind us of a simpler time, or maybe we sense that these venerable old
survivors that were built when our country was young have seen it all. But how
many of us have bothered to listen to the stories they tell or tried to understand
what makes them tick? This book reveals the essence of antique New England
homes and barns—their history, the people who built them, why they were
built that way, and how to restore them, piece by piece, without losing their
character. Learn to identify architectural styles from different periods, how to
strategize a restoration, and how to approach it systematically, from the timber
frame to the floors, walls, and ceilings, windows and doors, wiring, finishes,
and landscaping.
Jim DeStefano, P.E., AIA, F.SEI
, is a structural engineer and an architect.
He is the president of DeStefano & Chamberlain in Fairfield, Connecticut,
and a recognized authority on the restoration of historic structures and timber
frame construction.
