Our Favorite Houses

In honor of Old House Journal's 40th anniversary, we asked our staff to share their favorite houses that have been featured in the magazine. Read their picks here!

    “The Lustron Labyrinth,” April 2007

    A 1940s all-steel house that fits together just one way (like a Rubik’s cube), assembled by the homeowners. Fascinating!

    –Demetra Aposporos, Editor in Chief

    “Stroke of Luck,” May 2010

    A cute bungalow filled with salvage—my dream house!

    –Clare M. Alexander, Managing Editor

    “Buried Treasure,” July 2013

    I love that the house seemed to tell its own story through artifacts.

    –Megan Hillman, Junior Designer

    “Kragsyde II,” June 1987

    His wife points to a plan of the demolished Peabody & Stearns masterpiece and says: “Honey, build this for me.” And he does!

    –Patricia Poore, Editor Emeritus, At Large

    “Debugging in DeLand,” December 1998

    Florida family discovers their child’s allergies are linked to a massive cockroach infestation under their bungalow’s siding.

    –Mary Ellen Polson, Contributing Editor

    “House Moving,” February 1991

    It blew me away that people could up and move a house—and it still does!

    –Becky Bernie, Account Executive

    “Time Capsule,” May 2013

    I’ve always wanted a row house, and love how they welcomed and embraced the home’s history.

    –Danielle Small, Associate Publisher

    “Pre-Cut Houses,” December 1990

    Imagine getting pre-cut lumber, blueprints, and everything you need to build a house included.

    –Carol Murray, Account Executive

    “Community Rock,” May 2011

    Growing up in Newport, Rhode Island, I remember this house and would love to go inside one day.

    –Heather Glynn Gniazdowski, Online Business & Old House Media Group Sales Manager
