    I am purchasing a historic home and have absolutely no Idea what the Architectural style. Can anyone point me to something that would help me with this.
    Thank you

  35. by Michael at HHB, on 01.27.13 @ 11:05 AM

     

    Hi Larry! I’d love to see a photo of the house if you’d be willing to email me one or tell me where I could see it online. Otherwise, there are several decent style guides to be found online. As for books, the best is Virginia and Lee McAlesters’ “Field Guide to American Houses.” I actually discuss it and link to its Amazon page in an article above.

    -Michael
