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!
This incredible detail is just one of the wonders of this spectacular Queen Anne style house in the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood of San Francisco, a block from the epicenter of the 1967 “Summer of Love.” The current paint scheme manages to honor both the Victorian era of its construction and the psychedelic aesthetic of the 1960s.
The Victorian-era houses of northern California have a particular exuberance, often exceeding the excesses seen on houses of the period elsewhere. Original trim elements are always character-defining features of a house and should be preserved or restored if at all possible.
“Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners” includes information on exterior trim repair and designing appropriate and compatible replacements for elements that have been lost.
