About this title

Synopsis:

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.

Along Bungalow Lines

Creating and Arts & Crafts Style Home

The passion for all things bungalow has not diminished over the last few decades, and a greater number of homeowners are discovering the beauty and simplicity of this ultimate Arts & Crafts-style home. Increasingly, bungalow homeowners want to upgrade their vintage home to preserve its unique character and history but without sacrificing modern amenities. Along Bungalow Lines takes an all-encompassing look at what it takes to restore, renovate and sustain the Arts & Crafts homes of America. Whether it's a period home that needs enlarged or a newly constructed building designed to echo a historic one, this book provides useful design insight and inspiration to homeowners interested in capturing the essence of the Arts & Crafts style.

Paul Duchscherer lives in San Francisco where he has his own design consulting business specializing in historic period-style projects, which he founded in 1994. An avid proponent of historic preservation, Paul's knowledge and enthusiasm for design history includes extensive writing, lecturing, and teaching experience. He is a long-standing member of The National Trust for Historic Preservation, The Victorian Society in America, The American Decorative Arts Forum, and Artistic License, a guild of professionals who specialize in period-style work. On television, Paul has appeared on PBS's This Old House, and California Heartland; A&E's Open Book; and HGTV's Dream Builders, Restore America, Dream Drives, and most often on Curb Appeal, as a guest designer. His previous books include Beyond the Bugalow: Grand Homes in the Arts & Crafts Tradition; The Bungalow: America's Arts & Crafts Home; Inside the Bungalow: America's Arts & Crafts Interior; Outside the Bungalow: America's Arts & Crafts Garden; Victorian Glory in San Francisco and the Bay Area; and the Bungalow Basics series.

Linda Svendsen, a graduate of Music & Art High School and Parsons School of Design in New York, has been a renowned photographer for more than thirty years. She has traveled to all seven continents, bringing back this planet's most captivating images of peoples, lands, and wildlife.
