Editor’s Note
Welcome to our year-end issue of Early Homes, a biannual special edition from the publishers of Old House Journal. It was such a pleasure for me to work with our contributors and the owners who shared their homes. I fell in love with the two houses we tour this time: one a venerable Hudson River Valley stone dwelling built ca. 1780, the other a remarkable Georgian-style replica. (Incorporating reclaimed paneling and filled with period antiques, it has the ambiance of a true old house.) Patina is everywhere in evidence (see above!), in rooms redolent with history and in careful new work.

Floors emerged as a minor theme; you’ll find articles about lesser-known carpet types and wood flooring. As always, we also present the work of artisans who carry on the traditional work of the past. See their output not only in “For the Early Home” in the front of the magazine, but also in the articles on writing desks (and old-fashioned desk lamps), in the kitchens we show—where hand-applied finishes grace cabinets built by talented woodworkers—and, starting on page 61, in the comprehensive listing of companies reproducing all manner of early lighting.
