Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0764309811, Paperback)The doors are wide open and you're welcome to wander through. Don't worry about the carpets as you enter through stately doorways, cozy up to colossal fireplaces, and climb poetic staircases. For those who love the old homes of the New England area, this is a chance to enter and inspect the window sills and cupboards up close. This excellent new third edition features more than 400 photographs and illustrations, along with helpful tips provided to guide the remodeller of Jacobean, Colonial, Georgian, and Federal homes toward duplicating these antique architectural features. There are also architectural drawings from the Library of Congress and by Asher Benjamin, one of the leading New England builders and most influential designers of the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
