Editor’s Note
Throughout this issue you’ll find an underlying theme: houses with character intact. A fieldstone house in Quebec, once in serious disrepair and abandoned, was restored over a period of years, yet it looks untouched, as if all its owners had been benign. (Happily, much of its history had not been erased.) A new Saltbox hand-built by its owner and his father has, remarkably, the feeling and patina of an antique—the result of careful adherence to old designs as well as the use of salvaged materials. Finally, a new book by sensitive photographers captures rural farmhouses that retain their essential spirit.

As the future gets, well, more and more futuristic (and technologic), the past seems more familiar (and as solid as bricks and beams). Enjoy a slice of our architectural past, adapted with practicality and respect for today, in this issue of Early Homes.
