Texture and Pattern

The Queen Anne style is perhaps the most exuberant of the popular Victorian era styles. As seen here, the textures and patterns in the materials give the house visual interest and invite closer study. This detail shot of one portion of the Hench House in York, PA shows three siding materials (clapboard, scallop-cut shingle, and vertical boarding), spindle work, stick-work, turned posts, scroll-cut brackets, and stained glass. Maintaining or restoring the varied materials of these houses is key to preserving their character.

The Hench House was built in 1887 and is one of 13 featured homes photographed by noted architectural photographer David Clough for Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners. These beautifully restored houses, built between 1760 and 1960, are presented between the how-to chapters of the book. The book is at the printer and will be available in early December. Pre-ordered copies will ship as soon as they arrive from the printer. Pre-order now to be among the first to get one! https://www.amazon.com/dp/0884484904/ref=nav_timeline_asin?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
