Sweet Queen Anne Cottage

This sweet Queen Anne style cottage is almost a Shingle Style cottage. Only the clapboard siding on the first floor tips the scale to Queen Anne. Such fine distinctions are not uncommon among Victorian era styles, which often share features and forms.

For those who value the history of their house and their community, understanding these distinctions and respecting them in restoring/rehabilitating the house is important. Our historic buildings are the most visible documents of our past. They tell the story of how our communities came to be what they are today. Respecting the details of our houses, especially on the exterior, helps to tell that story to residents and visitors of our towns and cities.

Chapter 2 of “Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners” illustrates and describes 25 historic styles and types with character-defining features of each keyed to multiple color photos.

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

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

Local bookstores can order copies from W.W. Norton.
