True Tales From Old Houses

Jun 5, 2023

In today's episode, during listener Q&A, Stacy and Daniel answer a question from the archives. They discuss how they decorate their historic houses. Neither is into time capsule decorating, but both love incorporating antiques into the mix. 

And later, preservation hero and legend Bob Yapp is back for the second conversation in this two-part series. Recently, Bob made the difficult decision to tear down an old house vs. restoring it. He breaks down the reason for that heartwrenching choice and offers details about the historically sympathetic infill house he is building in its place.
