The best way to learn about historic houses is to look at them closely, and the most fun way to look at them closely is to do a puzzle showing a wonderful historic house! So, we made a unique and interesting collection of Historic House Puzzles for you to enjoy!
Although Queen Anne style houses are typically asymmetrical, this example is perfectly balanced. Common features of the style, including combined clapboard and shingle siding, projecting bays, towers, and porches, are found on this house, now an inn in beautiful Ogunquit, Maine.
Understanding the style of a house is the essential first step in developing a restoration plan that prioritizes the preservation of character-defining features while making changes necessary for modern life in an old house. More than 50 color photos illustrate the Queen Anne style in “Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners.”
