Editor’s Note
Enjoy a slice of our architectural past, adapted for today with practicality and respect, in this issue of Early Homes, a biannual special edition from the publishers of Old House Journal. You may see an underlying theme in the pages that follow: a love of simple, even homely, things that together are Americana. The country Greek Revival farmhouse got a new lease on life, then was filled over decades with local “relics of the past.” A sympathetic kitchen is squeezed into the existing floor plan of a 1747 house. And the new Georgian Colonial was built from a house plan based on an actual 18th-century original; although it affords modern comforts and is energy efficient, it has the feeling of an antique, right down to the furniture and a wall mural painted by the owner.

As owners restore, finish, and furnish their homes, artisans ensure that traditional work is carried on. See the output of their dedication, in the article about Americana, and in the Design Center listings.

I live in New England, my adopted and chosen home, where history and tradition remain the necessary backdrop for all good and new advancements. I can’t imagine living anyplace where the past is not ever present.

Patricia Poore, Editor of Early Homes
