It's not easy finding a forum for the purist that truly approaches historic preservation/restoration from an academic perspective. I think I just did! Since 2002 we have had a c. 1787 Shenandoah Valley limestone house. I intensely study early southern architecture of the “backcountry” regions and perform 95% of my museum grade restorations. I have an empty checkbook to prove it. I also study pre-civil war practices, material culture and the lost trades. I look forward to sharing and learning here. Looks to be a great site! Good Job John!

Thanks! And welcome to the Forum.

I would not say that we are 'academics' here, but possible we ARE literate, curious, and bent on doing best work.
