Mantel detail carved by Ebenezer Alden for his new house in 1797

Luscious Federal style carved mantel detail.

This gorgeous photo by Dave Clough Photography is of the south parlor mantle in the 1797 Ebenezer Alden House, one of the 13 featured houses presented between the how-to chapters of Restoring Your Historic House. Alden was a builder and carver who did this work in his own home. His tools (and tool box) remain in the house and were used during the restoration!

The book has gone to the printer and will be in available in November. Reserve your copy today and see all of Dave’s wonderful photos as soon as the book is released!
