Over the coming eight weeks we want to share with you a series of articles that we have written to help you understand important parts of your historic home. Each article will describe a feature–such as wood windows, New Orleans brick, and barge board–and also address some of the issues that home owners, historic preservationists, and architects face in the maintenance and renovation of specific components or historic building materials. We want you to be empowered to both appreciate and take care of historic homes and places in beautiful New Orleans.
Please come back or follow us for each “Your Historic Home” article in the coming weeks!
