Restoring Your Historic House: The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners by Scott T. Hanson and David Clough
This book does not repeat basic information that is readily available in many standard DIY books about carpentry, wiring, and plumbing. Rather, it shows how to adapt those DIY skills to the specialized needs of a historic house.

Although there are other books about renovating old houses, this is the first that prioritizes the identification and preservation of the historic, character-defining features of a house as a starting point in the process. That is the purpose of this book: to describe and illustrate a best-practices approach for updating historic homes for modern life in ways that do not attempt to turn an old house into a new one. The book also suggests many ways to save money in the process, without settling for cheap or inappropriate solutions.

Scott Hanson is a historic-building preservation professional and has 40 years’ experience rehabilitating historic houses. He has illustrated this authoritative book with hundreds of step-by-step photos, illustrations, charts, and decision-making guides. Interspersed throughout are photo essays of 13 restored historic houses representing a range of periods and architectural styles: Italianate, Victorian, Queen Anne, Federal, Colonial, Colonial Revival, Greek Revival, Ranch, Adobe, Craftsman, Shingle, and Rustic. With interior and exterior photography by David Clough, these multi-page features show what can be achieved when a historic home is renovated with a desire to preserve or restore as much historic character as possible.

Before and After B&W and Color Photography Throughout.

    Super thanks for the OHD Supporters! 🙂 Some of you didn’t reply to my email about being included in the shout out list, it’s not too late so if you want to be included in the list, contact me.

    Today’s old photo, except for “Manchester, Washington”, don’t know anything else about the house or the people. The next photo is from one of the Nordic countries. It has nothing to do with the old house photo.

    I’m going to continue keeping out of the shares for a bit longer, just need a bit more time. That’s going to include people sending me stuff, sorry. Also, not enough people was interested in the open house posts so those will be discontinued for sure.

      Adding, I’ve taken a break this week from my super duper deep state searches. If you are wondering why so many of the same states lately, December to New Years is always slow real estate wise, a good time to catch up posting homes that have been on the market a while. There are many more states to go through, there will be variety (as much as there ever was) again.

    Beautiful classical revival (?) style home in Henrietta TX, 2/3 acre and just over 4K square feet, asking $320K. Be sure to check out the dining room! This house is about 30 mins from me and I have seen it in person:

    https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/209-S-Hancock-St-Henrietta-TX-76365/87230798_zpid/

    This Queen Anne is back on the market, for sale by owner – been posted here in the past, Dublin, TX, 4508 square feet, reduced to $635K, 18 acres. About 1.5 hours from me, seen this one in person too. There were 2 other Queen Anne homes next door – quite a street scene! Kelly – let me know how to send you the old pictures so they can be added to the post:

    Good morning from Wisconsin! I’m still sort of a newbie to the site so I’m still learning about the different styles and categories of homes so bear with me!

    1904 (Neoclassical???) in Sturgeon Bay, WI
    https://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/727-Michigan-St_Sturgeon-Bay_WI_54235_M84953-07900#photo7

    Lots of beautiful, unpainted woodwork. Leaded glass windows and built ins. My favorite part is the kitchen with floor to ceiling built ins, and the kitchen was updated very nicely.

    https://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/614-2nd-St-NW_Waukon_IA_52172_M73328-81321#photo0

    Lots of nice woodwoork, and original cabinets in the kitchen. Looks like some original features in the bathrooms, leaded glass windows, and a super cool bonus, the garage.

    https://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/417-Prospect-Ct_Waukesha_WI_53186_M86672-65983#photo0

    Lots of updates on this one, but I really love the support brackets. Looks like there is original tile in the kitchen and possibly original cabinets (though painted) off of the kitchen. Really nice woodwork in the living room and dining room, beautiful staircase which I’d immediately remove the carpet from. I love the built in bench on the landing. Curious about the little nook underneath the stairs? Anyone ever seen this? The upstairs has too much painted woodwork and those nasty boob lights, but I spy a couple of nice built in window benches, nice wood floors, and a built in cabinet in the hallway.

            It is understood! I appreciate it. Anyone can find something about a property (or anything else) they don’t like. It can be challenging to find something positive to say sometimes. I always think of Nellie Olsen when I feel negative and I try to find a positive thing to say about her. Yes…I am quite dorky!

    Happy New Year to everybody!

    Not all that much new, but I’ve scrounged up one brand new listing and a few that may have gotten lost in the shuffle.

    This 1942 Colonial Revival cottage in West Hartford, Ct is a bit of a sleeper. It’s on the market for $289k. Look closely, however, there’s a slate roof on this little two-bedroom number and the listing states it was architect designed. The details are all quite nice, but we have the original, or nearly so, kitchen and baths. The place needs some vintage appliances, some period wallpaper, and just a little tweaking. Does anyone know what the little door to the right of the window in the kitchen is? Stumped me.

    https://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/290-Steele-Rd_West-Hartford_CT_06117_M42300-20095

    This 1844 Colonial in Newtown, Ct listed at $515k more modern but tastefully done. From what I can see, the build date appears to be significantly older than stated. A pleasing and comfortable old place.

    https://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/84-Riverside-Rd_Sandy-Hook_CT_06482_M36432-37748

    A 1913 Shingle Style in Middlebury, Ct for $339k. The kitchen is a little suburban tract house, but the main takeaway here is that wonderful sleeping porch. A little less white paint and some gentle care here would do wonders since it’s all mostly still there.

    https://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/94-North-St_Middlebury_CT_06762_M97295-81888

    Lastly is sort of the odd duck I am fond of. The listing is showcasing a 1930 carriage house in Roxbury, Ct listed for 399k. Gorgeous stonework, funky spaces. What they’re not really showing is the 1804 Cape that really is the whole point of the property. It says it needs complete rehab, but I’d love to see more pictures. It’s an interesting parcel with 11 acres and a ton of potential.

    https://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/178-Baker-Rd_Roxbury_CT_06783_M49128-47291

    To go with Lancaster John’s idea last week of pairing an appropriate car for the first house on my list today, I present you with this 1942 Caddy convertible. A fine car for a fine house.

      Nice group of houses! Love the West Hartford cottage – and correct me if I am wrong – that is a pretty good price for WH, no? I think the little door may be an exhaust fan, at least that is what it looks like from the outside.

        Anne, yes. It’s a nice if bit busy street, very close to everything. The little door makes sense as an exhaust fan, but being across the room from the stove, one wonders if it does much good!

      DWR, on the ’42 Colonial Revival, look at picture # 31, it appears to be ventilation of some sort. Cute little place there.

      The ’44 Colonial has me swooning! I am not usually a fan of homes of this style (I’m more of a 1900-1930’s, craftsman lover) but this one has me drooling. I love everything about it from the decor, to the paint colors and how they make the brick and flooring pop. I even really like the modern kitchen. Great find here.

      Shingle – love the staircase, the cute little sleeping porch, and the built in upstairs.

      Lancaster, PA, PA

      That little 1942 home in W. Hartford is a gem. Small but elegant, I love the exuberant woodwork on the living room shelves, the original bathrooms and the original kitchen! I’ll bet there was a 40″ range where the fridge is now. I didn’t look at every detail but that entire house screams originality, except for the paint colors and furnishings. And of course that 1942 Cadillac for the driveway is a dream too…

        Ahhhh. John! yes, makes sense that that very easily could have been where the stove was originally, and certainly makes more sense as to why the vent fan would be a bit more useful.

      The stone work, on the odd duck property, is worth the price alone, imo. What I wouldn’t give. Both homes look great.

    Greetings All and Happy New Year!

    Kelly I LOVE the kitchen photo! from the decorative shelf edging, to the stove and all the simple details. nice

    Here is what I found this week (and cannot wait to see what everyone else has found…later on at home) smile:

    1910, Yonkers, NY 799,900
    What I like or rather am curious about is the exterior. It is kind of Chaletesque (excuse my Archie Bunkerism) and has an odd porch on the third floor which sticks out from a dormer. There are a few nice public spaces, but after that, it gets rather plain.

      Now this one I see going fast. It’s actually in a pretty decent neighborhood near several SCAD buildings, one just down a few blocks. This could be done properly and make a terrific rental or AirBnB. The Victorian District of Savannah is a lovely spot.

    Not much new in Massachusetts market tho I did find one that I don’t think has been shared. I will start tho in Carey, OH with this handsome 1900 listed for $290,000, beautiful wood everywhere & very nice built-ins in the dining room.

      Carey, OH – this is really nice, however, I always dislike the round columns and capitals in Craftsman homes. It just doesn’t seem to fit right with all of the other clean, straight line features. Really loving all of the woodwork on the first floor, the light fixtures, the built ins, and the swinging service door. The kitchen is quite lackluster but I think there are a couple of original cabinets in that little back nook. Cute. Heading upstairs, I’d remove the carpets and expose the original hardwood floors. I don’t mind the painted woodwork so much here, surprisingly. I especially like the cobalt blue room and how it contrasts against the white.

      Mountain retreat – some really nice stuff in here. I especially like the kitchen. If a kitchen is going to be redone, these are the types of cabinets I prefer to see, as well as those in the bathroom, though I’d match the door handles and pulls to the ones in the kitchen. Speaking of the cabinets, I really love that olive color too! And what a cute little bench and coat hook area off the kitchen.

      I like the Leominster house! Built in the 1870’s for Frederick W. Hudson (1818-1897), who had patents and manufactured apple parers with Lockey & Howland.

          You should check out a youtube channel called Hand Tool Rescue. Actually everyone should, it’s pretty cool. The guy restores old tools. No commentary, just a few ‘subtitles’ once in a while… they guy is funny as heck too, weirdly enough. I find his videos mesmerizing.

          Anyway, in one video he restores what he calls “Most Unnecessarily Complicated Apple Peeler” It’s awesome!

          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xrZiY3_HC5k

          And yes, I’ve watched all of his videos, numerous imes. *grin*

      The Carey house has some amazing woodwork. Think about that carpet being gone and putting in a few antique pieces to bridge some of that character with the modern day. I even don’t hate that 70s kitchen. I’d do maybe a limewash on that brick arch to tone back the color. Lots here to work with. The VT mountain house is great too. Love the miles of unpainted wood. Anyone have any thoughts about exterior colors on a house like St. Albans? I know it’s more Colonial Revival, but to me, late Victorian colors done simply would accentuate it more. It would be likely out of fashion to use those deeper muddier colors, but Colonial Revival colors on a house like that just don’t feel right to me.

    So, I’m considering shifting my focus to houses built in the 20s now since we are once again in the 20s!

    Already found an adorable vintage 1923 car that I’m keeping a secret until I buy it because dangit everything I find that I admit I like gets snatched up before I get a shot at it! 😂

    Hi! New here. (Well, long-time lurker, new supporter.) Huge kudos to Kelly for making this community & constantly feeding us, her ravenous audience!

    First I have a question related to photo #2 (so cool and rare to see a kichen photo!) since OHD seems to have an endless supply of incredibly knowledgeable folks who are amazingly generous with their knowledge! I once lived in a house (with an uncertain build date) that seemed to have the remains of such a bricked-in stove area/counter as seen in the picture. What are these types of stoves called? When were such arrangements in use? When did the type of metal “range” seen in the photo become popular versus just fire underneath and holes above to nest pots into? It’s not unlike those even older setups I’ve seen in places such as restored plantations (might have been Monticello?). Were there more phases between these two methods? Are there good resources for understanding the lineage of kitchens/stoves?

    Also I believe the “box” in the Hartford house listing photo is a kitchen exhaust fan with a cover that springs(?) open when in use. It’s a bit too high for a milk cupboard (for the milkman to leave milk bottles in), but we can see a pull chain to turn on the fan motor (from down where you can reach it).

    Ballston Lake, New York 1770? with a Greek Revival make over and other alterations. $293,000

    I just realized this house is now pending. I like the quirky Greek Revival overall style; not sure I can see anything of 1770. I can also see elements of Italianate, colonial revival and at least one mid-century style bow window. It’s a fun property to consider whether you want to back date or make a few appropriate updates.

    Honeoye Falls, NY, 1850 Greek Revival $675,000

    The plaster work and woodwork details are very robust (check out the newel post) and this seems like it was a very fine farmhouse when built. Three barns which seem to be in excellent repair and 8+ acres and I just realized it is now pending as well.

    Harborside, ME, 1921 Dutch Colonial/Colonial Revival compound, $3 million

    The main house, guest house and boat house have all been updated and restored in a very sensitive way and even as picky as I am sometimes I would want to make very few changes. Lots of glowing, unpainted woodwork in the main house. I believe the guest house could be an older Greek Revival style cottage with a colonial revival update. I love the fireplace in the boat house. Kudos to the owners as well as the realtor for the photos that show the layout of the house and property very well.

    Topsham, ME, 1797 Federal $549,900

    The James Purington Jr house-I am posting because the woodwork, while very simple for the most part, seems particularly finely done, including interior shutters in some rooms.

    Rochester, NY, 1930 stone Tudor revival $1.25 mm

    I really like the quality materials and workmanship in this house—the stone, slate and copper contrasting with the metal windows is beautiful. The interior has more paneling that you often see in a Tudor coupled with three original bathrooms. The kitchen has had a very elaborate update.

    Tremont Maine, “European” style

    OK, I am breaking a very important norm here by posting a house built in the year 2000 instead of a true old house. Since their are very few houses old houses here in the Pacific Northwest I have considered building a new old house but I know I would never be satisfied with the results. Nevertheless, I really admire it when someone builds a new house that captures a feeling of age as this one does. I think the builder did a great job with the details that go into the final effect.

    It is expensive at $1.9 mm, but it does have a few acres and is waterfront on Mt. Desert Island.

    One more that just popped up for your review.

    This is listed as an 1890 house in Litchfield, Ct on 20 acres for $495k. Now, the form and eaves look vaguely Greek Revival, the staircase more 1860-70s, really hard to tell here. What you are getting though is a nice old house that hasn’t been mucked around with too much. A good barn, great garage and workshop and some beautiful land. The price is likely a tad high, but there’s not much like this on the market now. The more I look at it, the roof pitch is too tall to really be a GR, but it’s an interesting amalgam. I am looking very covetously at that kitchen sink. In the immortal words of Daffy Duck, mine, mine, MINE!

      1936 Cabin

      Sandy, what a great house, I am smitten with how original almost all the rooms are, kitchen and bath excluded- understandible, thank you for sharing

  22. Happy New Year from Stillwater, New Jersey!
    Some of you may remember this house, posted on this wonderful website in June of last year: https://www.oldhousedreams.com/2019/06/26/1940-tudor-revival-stillwater-nj/

    Well, as of mid-December, my husband and I are now the very proud owners of this lovely home! We originally discovered the listing when it went up on Zillow, but we found the Old House Dreams post with all the wonderful comments a few weeks later, and went to see the house for the first time in July. It’s taken a while to sort things out, and we finally closed in December.

    The house is a treasure inside and out, from floor to ceiling. We are so grateful to Old House Dreams…reading the post and comments played a big role in inspiring us to drive over an hour to look at the property with no real expectation of buying it. But once we saw it, we just could not leave it. 

    It was originally built by a French rock garden specialist in 1938. There was a major renovation with additions in 1973 and the landscaping has evolved over many years with different owners. The English walled garden and several beautiful iron gates were added around 1992. We are really looking forward to everything blooming in the Spring!

    Warmest wishes to all for a happy, healthy New Year!

I love hearing that OHD led you there… I hope that some day I’ll be able to post something similar! My husband is nearing retirement age, and we’ve been living in a “new box” for about 20 years after 20 years in our own old house (1889 farmhouse). He’s only recently said he’d like our next house to be another old one, although more restored BEFORE we buy it, this time around!

    Majestic 16th century frescoed apartment in Verona Italy. Price Upon Request (but probably in the 6-8M range)

    I posted because it’s unlike any home I’ve ever seen posted in the USA and truly a work of art. North of Venice, Verona is known to most as a Shakespearean setting, but the towns and countryside in this area abound with beautiful historic structures like this. This apartment is is an exemplary example and is situated on the ‘noble floor’ of the palace, and has been impeccably restored.

    Happy Weekend OHD community!

    I’m still searching for a specific home I saw on this site. As I’ve mentioned before, I don’t know the year, style or location. This particular home had exquisite details in the woodwork. I believe there was a wood boarder at the top of one of the rooms that had horses and trees on it. I believe the horses and trees to have been wooden inlays and not paintings or stenciling.

    I have been through every house from 1849 and earlier and it is not anyone of them. So whereas I don’t know the build year, I can tell you it is after 1849. With darn near 18,000 homes on this site, I’m having a difficult time finding this exact home/post.

    If this rings a bell with anyone, please feel free to point me in the right direction.

    Thank you in advance!

              You’re welcome!

              Yep, the Gorge is beautiful. I’ve spent most of my life in this area, and I love it. Where I live I like to tell people “It’s gorgeous here, but we pay for the beauty in the winter” It’s brutal here sometimes… NOT for wimps.

              An update on searching: You can rule out all barns, all log cabins, and all Folk Victorians built since 1850. Next I’m going to search Craftsman’s. That’ll take a while!

              I decided to break it up, searching the most likely styles for that kind of woodwork first. Makes it seem a bit less daunting, and I thought maybe I’d get lucky. No joy yet, but I’m really good at riding that fine line between persistance and stupidity. *grin*

                I also have broken it down into sections. My husband’s smart words to me this morning, “you’ve looked at so many houses and have admitted to dreaming of nothing but these houses for a few months, is it possible you dreamed this horse trim?” Umm…yes! Yes it is! However, I truly and deeply feel like it was real!!!

                What I believe I can remember…

                It was a dark wood in the home, not a blonde or red wood.

                The house was furnished. I don’t recall it being an empty home.

                I have bad vision. I wear glasses but strongly feel like I need a new prescription. When I saw the trim, I didn’t see it as a sketch nor a mural, like so many others have. It looked like trees and horses were made of a lighter colored wood and inlaid. There was a photo of the trim close up.

    Grapeland, an 1820’s Federal on the Eastern Shore of Virginia, has a waterfront location and 14 acres which no doubt contribute to its $895K asking price, but rather undistinguished newer homes of similar size and location seem to be in a similar price range. As an old house lover I’d pick this one any day. https://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/3743-Grapeland-Cir_Exmore_VA_23350_M63060-88533

      The brick Colonials in Virginia of this period are certainly something special. This house reminds me of a show I recently downloaded called American Rehab. The first season deals with Mt. Airy, a Palladian villa on something like 1200 acres. The same family has been there for 8 generations and they tackle updating some of the house (nothing much in the main house, thank goodness) and it’s dependencies. You don’t get to see a ton of the formal spaces, but it’s a rare glimpse into a very important early home still in private hands.

    Parts of this 1820 traditional home retain an historic feel, but other parts are new. Nonetheless, if your not a purist it’s a lot of house (5634) square feet on 78 waterfront acres for (in my opinion) a rather reasonable asking price of $650K. A bonus is that it is near the very interesting barrier island ecosystem that has been preserved by the Nature Conservancy. 1820,Wachapreague, VA (Eastern Shore), $650K. https://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/33457-Bradfords-Neck-Rd_Wachapreague_VA_23480_M63876-95353

    I gave serious thought to purchasing this home when it was on the market 5 or so years ago. I’m glad to see that the people who bought it didn’t over-do the “restoration,” although I would have done a more period-sympathetic kitchen. It’s a classic example of an Eastern Shore home that keeps going on forever in one straight line, in the county seat of Accomac, population 519. And with the Chesapeake a few miles west, and the Atlantic a few miles east, it would make a great summer retreat or full time home. 1799, Accomac, VA, $425K. (The same photos seem to have been uploaded twice.) https://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/23292-Front-St_Accomac_VA_23301_M68073-37808#photo0

    Further north on the Eastern Shore, in Worcester County, MD, you can usually count on Snow Hill to have a lovely historic home on the market. This 1784 Greek Revival (?) doesn’t disappoint. The kitchen is modern but fairly sympathetic. Some interesting looking outbuildings, too. The date is from the listing but this home seems newer than 1784, Snow Hill, MD: $339K. https://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/106-E-Market-St_Snow-Hill_MD_21863_M63575-42620

    I’m sharing this home on Tangier Island, VA in part because it’s a seeming bargain at only $30K,($15 per square foot) but mostly to bring the OHD community’s attention to this unique community on a fragile island in the Chesapeake Bay. It’s lost 67% of its land area since 1850, and is projected to more or less disappear altogether in another 50 years due to climate change and rising water levels. It’s well worth a dive into its history https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tangier,_Virginia and a visit, too. I could rationalize buying this at 30K — for less than the price of many cars, you could have a permanent or vacation home in the midst of a unique ecosystem. And you could probably do some Air BnB rentals, too. 1900 (but I would guess 1880’s), Tangier VA, $30K. https://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/16199-Main-Ridge-Rd_Tangier_VA_23440_M66735-80372

      Jay-Rosewater, if you log in this week check out this kitchen. IMHO it’s a really good example of a modern kitchen which is sympathetic to the overall property.

        So glad I ran across your post here, John! You’re SO right. Very nice indeed. It’s less an adaptation than a complete recreation: and you could not be more right about it’s being in sympathy with the house generally. Well done owner!

    Here’s another one in my town likely to be a goner. If there was a demand for a restored house, the future developer would have enough room to keep it, but I wouldn’t bet on it.
