This book is both a history and a celebration of New Zealand's magnificent old houses, a clear and approachable account of how these houses were made and inhabited.

Very well illustrated with old and new photographs and exact technical drawings. Contains extracts from contemporary letters, diaries and trade literature.

This is an important account of the methods used in the construction of old New Zealand houses - from traditional Maori dwellings and the earliest European houses of cob and adobe, to the rise of the 'kitset' villa building industry in the latter half of the 19th century. It chronicles the impact of the Californian and Spanish bungalows, the 'arts and crafts' cottages, and the quirky Modernes built in New Zealand before World War II. Significantly, this account ends with the introduction of the state house.
