Editor’s Note
After such a brutal, blizzard-filled winter on the East Coast, we are all ready to enjoy this spring’s warm breezes and sunshine. This year, design trends continue to blur the boundaries of indoors and outdoors—extending the outdoor season into late fall and early spring.

In this issue of New Old House, architect Jan Gleysteen presents both indoor and outdoor spaces that take full advantage of the landscape. Introducing traditional spaces, such as farmer’s porches, breakfast nooks, and covered terraces, Gleysteen incorporates bluestone and limestone flooring, classical column profiles, and fieldstone walls to create authentic spaces. Heat lamps, retractable screens, wood-burning fireplaces, outdoor grills, refrigerators, surround sound systems, and even flat-screen TVs apply all the creature comforts of interiors to the outside.

We also celebrate the work of landscape architect Virginia Burt, who created several garden rooms using salvaged materials from a deconstructed Victorian-era house on the next lot in Cleveland. Burt repurposed old timbers and foundation stone to create terraces, walls, steps, pathways, and a pergola and trellis. She also added heirloom plantings to the garden to give it a historical feel.

Garden guru Michael Weishan shares his trials and tribulations of planting an orchard in his backyard. He offers sound advice on how to grow healthy, fruit-bearing trees. His advice—as always—is practical when it comes to this romantic, beautiful garden element.

We also showcase two architects’ renovations of classic buildings from opposite coasts. Architect Michael Burch and his wife and business partner, Diane Wilk, purchased a Spanish Colonial Revival house in the foothills of Los Angeles. Burch doubled the sized of modest 2,300-square-foot house for his growing family—at the time, Wilk was expecting triplets. Burch left the original dwelling intact, while the addition grew organically from the old footprint.

On the East Coast, Architect Robert MacNeille of Carpenter & MacNeille Architects in Essex, Massachusetts, was charged with expanding a Peabody & Stearns carriage house for a family. The original building is a handsome Gothic Revival structure with decorative detailing. MacNeille worked with a team of skilled craftspeople to design an addition that pays homage to both the original building as well as the famous architects who designed the structure.

We hope this issue of New Old House inspires you in your own home projects!
