Book Description

This easy to follow book is an invaluable source of advice and guidance for those wishing to restore the original features of an Edwardian house, or who simply admire the elegance of these period properties. It explains the characteristic architectural styles, shows how Edwardian houses originally appeared and describes why they were made and finished in such a way.

The Edwardian era includes houses built between 1890 and 1914, when architects were inspired by the romantic styles of Art Nouveau and the Arts and Crafts Movement. They remain some of our best constructed, elegant and durable housing stock and add a distinct character to Britain’s towns and villages.

Restoring a period house to its original form can be very satisfying. The original features detailed here include sash and casement windows, coloured glass, door plates and handles, letter boxes, porches, balconies, rainwater hoppers, fireplaces, stairs, wall mouldings, and fitted cupboards.

Using the author’s own detailed diagrams in full colour, there is advice on the care and renovation of existing features, as well as tips on how to maintain and improve the original fittings in your home. There is a detailed list of websites to help track down original fittings that have been lost over time.

More About the Author

I trained as an artist, photographer, and map maker and use these illustrative skills to make easy to understand books about my favourite subject, English buildings. They are aimed at people who might be renovating, tracing the history of or just interested in local buildings, with clearly labelled drawings, diagrams and photos, specifically produced for each book, making them popular with beginners in the subject and students. They are published by Countryside Books who focus on value for money and hence most of my books have listed prices from only £4.99 - £9.99.
There are around twenty of my titles available on Amazon including a series on period houses from Tudor times through to the 1950s, famous buildings like Abbeys, Castles and Country Houses, and other subjects as diverse as narrowboats and gravestones!
I was born in Sussex in 1966, and currently live in Leek, on the edge of the Peak District, with my wife and two children. More details on my website: www.trevoryorke.co.uk

Bought as Christmas gift for my son. He has recently bought a property. I was a bit disappointed as I expected a bigger book. Think he will find it interesting.
