Editor’s Note
May I admit to sometimes being confused as we put this issue together? The beautiful and authentic gambrel-roofed house in Maine fills the “reproduction house” feature. But I kept putting the proof pages for that article into the folder for our “restoration” feature—because, as I marveled over the antiques-filled rooms, it just didn’t seem possible that the house was built only two decades ago.

Interesting that its builders reproduced early paint-decoration, while the owners of the restored 1840 house in Indiana chose white walls to keep the focus on their collections.

Combining old-house restoration with new work, a couple in Pennsylvania reworked an old summer kitchen and addition to their 1816 stone house. Now they can enjoy a period-sensitive kitchen that’s also a convenience-filled gathering place for family.
