New Old House: Designing with Reclaimed Materials
As Americans become increasingly aware of the need to reduce, reuse, and recycle, along comes a book that is all about how to incorporate those ideas into the biggest investment in life-building a home. The New Old House showcases the design possibilities associated with using recycled and reclaimed materials in new home construction, and incorporating these materials into modern homes using traditional applications and techniques. Author Ed Knapp offers tips on using materials in a wide range of applications, and an amazing array of modern design examples and ideas are represented in styles ranging from rustic to elegant. The New Old House will show any new home builder how to add beauty and character to their lives with the best of these creative techniques. Ed Knapp is the owner/operator of Vintage Beams, an import/export company specializing in reclaiming vintage building materials and incorporating them into new building design. He has offices in Georgia and China, as well as Sylva, North Carolina, where he lives.
