New England Shingle Style

A classic New England Shingle Style summer cottage. “Kewaydin,” the E.C. Stanwood Cottage in Kennebunkport, Maine was designed by Boston architects Chapman & Frazer and built in 1900 as part of the Cape Arundel summer colony.

This beautiful photo was taken by architectural photographer Dave Clough in 2013 for a book project that I was part of. Maine State Historian, Earle G. Shettleworth, Jr. asked me to co-author the book with him and architect Christopher Glass.

The result of that collaboration was “Homes Down East, Classic Maine Coastal Cottages and Town Houses,” published by Tilbury House Publishing in 2014. The book features all fifty-two Maine houses published in Scientific American’s architectural magazines between the 1880s and 1920s.

Following publication of “Homes Down East,” the publisher asked if I had any ideas for another book. I did, and the seed for “Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners” was planted.

Having Dave Clough join the project as photographer for the 13 featured houses in that book added enormously to the quality of the finished product.

The award-winning and bestselling 720-page hardcover book and “Homes Down East” are both available in bookstores nationwide and from online retailers.

Signed and personalized copies of both are available directly from me in our shop, https://yourhistorichouse.com/shop/.

Our shop also carries related preservation titles by other authors. Discounted combination packs are available!
