The Gothic Revival style became popular in the mid-19th century. Architectural plan books spread the style from coast to coast in America. Sometimes called Carpenter Gothic, the style allowed for great creativity by the builder and the detail on these houses is endlessly varied. Elaborate verge boards (scroll-cut eave trim) and crockets at the gable peaks are characteristic of the style.
Understanding the style of a house is the essential first step in developing a restoration plan that prioritizes the preservation and restoration of character-defining features while making changes necessary for modern life in an old house.
More than two dozen full color photos are used to illustrate the style in Chapter 2 of “Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners.”
The 720 page award-winning and best-selling hardcover book is available in bookstores nationwide and from online booksellers.
