Dow Farm Kitchen Still-life.

A lot of people and preservation firms contributed to the creation of Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners but no one contributed more than photographer David Clough!

Dave drove from Maine to New Mexico to photograph the 13 featured houses that separate the how-to chapters. Thanks to his gorgeous photographs, the reader can draw inspiration from the wonderful restoration work others have achieved. This still-life shot in the Dow Farm kitchen is a beautiful example.

Dow Farm has remained in the same family for nearly two centuries but suffered a period of neglect in the mid-20th century. Fortunately, in the 1970’s a young man with an interest in historic preservation showed up. A unique relationship between the Dow descendants and this young man has resulted in the complete restoration of the property in the decades since.

The story is told in Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners. The 720-page hardcover book is available online and in bookstores nationwide. Signed copies can be ordered directly from the author on this site.

If your local bookstore doesn’t carry the book, please ask them to contact their rep at W.W. Norton to order it.
