Mid-Century Modern is Historic!

Dave Clough Photography

Mid-Century Modern is historic! The Weston House was built in 1957 and is now 64 years old. It is now as old as a Victorian house built in 1893 was in 1957. The residential architecture of the Post World War II period introduced new forms and materials to accommodate new ideas and ways of living. The family car moved into the house and got its own front door.

Weston House 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 covers houses built from c. 1730 to c. 1970 and includes the modern materials used in Mid-Century houses, which most restoration books do not address. From style identification through designing your project and all the stages that follow, the book comprehensively guides homeowners through the process of restoration/rehabilitation of historic homes for 21st century life while retaining historic character.

The 720 page award-winning and best-selling hardcover book is available in bookstores nationwide and from online retailers.

Signed and personalized copies are available directly from the author in the shop on this page, https://yourhistorichouse.com/shop/.

Your local bookstore can order copies from W.W. Norton.
