Rebuilding Place in the Urban Space

"A community’s physical form, rather than its land uses, is its most intrinsic and enduring characteristic." [Katz, EPA] This blog focuses on place and placemaking and all that makes it work--historic preservation, urban design, transportation, asset-based community development, arts & cultural development, commercial district revitalization, tourism & destination development, and quality of life advocacy--along with doses of civic engagement and good governance watchdogging.

Historic Preservation Tuesday: Amazing Set of Historic Preservation articles on Lincoln, Nebraska builder website

Starcraft Custom Builders of Lincoln, Nebraska specializes in:
authentic period design, preservation, restor­ation, renovation and remodeling services.
They have an extensive set of articles on historic preservation infused topics, ranging from architectural styles to elements of houses such as kitchens, bathroom, etc.).

The articles are thorough, profusely illustrated, and have some citations too.

In past writings I have suggested that home remodeling television networks like HGTV and DIY Network could provide much more in the way of resources on their websites ("Building the capacity for self-help and "Rehab Addict" as an example of how more could be done").

The Starcraft Custom Builders is a great model for what is possible.

I imagine the quality of their end product is quite high, given the quality of the information provided on their website.
