Tour historic homes and other buildings that have been altered to accommodate 21st century lifestyles. Through 338 color images, learn how renovating or refashioning an older building increases the financial return on the initial investment, preserves the original integrity of the building, and prevents unnecessary disruption of a neighborhood. Visit an 1855 Gambrel, a Denver Beaux-Arts House, and a 20th century Georgetown house, and see how old houses can be modified and updated to accommodate the demands of present-day life. That 19th century inglenook can become a home office or a new master suite can be made from two bedrooms. The possibilities are endless and will inspire your own ideas for transforming yesterday’s old house or building into your dream home.
