Help for restoring old houses
Lots of interesting articles in the March issue of Old-House Journal. I especially enjoyed the ones on two restored bungalows; an article on Arts & Crafts fireplaces; the rebuilding of Grass Lawn (destroyed by Hurricane Katrina) in Gulfport, Mississippi; and the history of Dearborn, Michigan. Lots of lovely photos. This magazine is a great resource for restoring or furnishing historical homes, and check out the book reviews of Passion for Primitives and Patina Style. For those wanting more background on old haunted houses, be sure to read the letters to the editors.
