Our long-running and very successful Kitchen Revival Tour is being transformed for 2015 into the Old House Revival Tour!
This redesigned tour still offers the opportunity to see great kitchens in vintage homes, but we will now also showcase other living spaces. The tour includes a wide range of approaches and resources for preserving original building materials, restoring spaces lost to previous remodels, and creating new spaces that are sensitive to the architecture of the home.
With the ongoing struggle over old house demolitions, it has never been more important for us to demonstrate, to even the most skeptical, that older homes can be adapted to a 21st century lifestyle while remaining true to original architectural style, historic character and charm.
No matter what style or era of house you prefer, this self-guided tour offers something for everyone. Homes on the tour represent many of the most common eras and architectural styles in the Portland area.
If you are considering taking on a home renovation project yourself, homeowners and contractors will be on hand to provide you with tips and real-life experiences on everything from retaining original material to integrating modern appliances.
We hope you’ll join us as we embark on a new era for this always popular tour – all in the pursuit of our mission to inspire people to conserve the art, craft, and context of historic buildings and places.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT!
