Synopsis:

Restored or remodeled homes in a classic country style.

Twenty restored or renovated early American country homes feature the myriad of different styles from around the country. The homes exude a simplicity that is somewhat rustic and somewhat country in an understated way. Tim Tanner also features some small cabins that have been made livable for today as well as decorating ideas and outbuildings.

Early American Country Homes is an inspiration and resource for those who are interested in building, re-creating, restoring, or just enjoying a return to simpler styling in home design.

Tim Tanner restored his first circa 1870s home in 1988, and has been involved in restoration and reproduction projects using reclaimed materials ever since then. He is an artist in and around Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and is on the faculty at Brigham Young University Idaho, where he teaches Art and Design.

From the Inside Flap:

early American country homes

A RETURN TO SIMPLER LIVING

What is an Early American country home? It’s unpretentious, not fancy. It’s rustic . . . but not. It’s country―downhome country. It’s simple―in fact some might call it primitive. But most of all, it just feels like home.

In some cases, the owners of the homes featured here have added graceful touches to the bones of great old houses, while maintaining their historical grounding to the past. In others, owners have created contemporary country homes that fit snugly into Early American traditions, sometimes even using historical materials to better evoke the timeless simplicity of country living.

Author Tim Tanner and his wife Johnna restored their first nineteenth-century home in 1988, and have been involved in restoration and reproduction projects using reclaimed materials ever since. This book is meant to be an inspiration and resource for anyone interested in building, re-creating, restoring, or just enjoying simple Early American country styling.

TIM TANNER has been a graphic designer, artist, and freelance illustrator for over 25 years, with his work appearing on the covers of several national best sellers. He has been an avid history buff since childhood, and is a member of the American Mountain Men and a founding member of the American Longrifle Association, where he currently serves as chairman of its National Standing Committee on Authenticity. He has published articles on historical subjects in various publications, including the Rocky Mountain Fur Trade Journal and Muzzleloader Magazine. He is on the faculty at Brigham Young University, Idaho, where he teaches art and design. A native of Utah, he currently resides in Teton Valley, Idaho.
