I expect to use this in my volunteer work as a member of the local design review committee which approves changes in historic districts and historic structures. Very important in New England.

The practical guide to something of the latter half of 2020 for me. This was my second time attempting to read this, motivated by an ongoing need to ID basic characteristics about residential neighborhoods in places I'm working, primarily rough age of construction. It's a very long and thorough, if now dated, encyclopedia of home styles in the US that can be a helpful reference if you work in or have interest in the world of "old" real estate.

I thought I was the only house geek.....but now I know I'm not alone. There are others, and look, now we have a book to encourage our obsessions. I have always wondered how my old house would be classified; I now know that I own a gable-front and wing Folk Victorian. This is even better than my Victorian Houses Coloring Book!
