Editor’s Note
I hope you’ll enjoy this very pretty issue of Early Homes, a biannual special edition from the publishers of Old House Journal. Here we look at homes and furnishings that date to before 1850 or so—classic designs that never go out of favor. I notice, in this issue, an underlying theme: patronage of the craftsman. Nowhere is that more obvious than in the story about a reproduction Cape; our writer, Catherine Lundie, was taken with the homeowners’ passion in creating a house of the period. “This is not just their home or their hobby; it’s their lifestyle,” she said to me. “Each room, and everything in it, has a well-researched origin and a story.” The couple have become friends with many of the traditional artisans, cabinetmakers, and artists who have worked on their new old house.

In the stories that follow, you’ll see houses meticulously restored—again, by people skilled in the old trades. You’ll see doors made in the time-honored way, period kitchen cabinets custom fitted to an old room, and a folk artist adept at carving and historical finishes. Enjoy!

Patricia Poore, Editor of Early Homes
