About this title


Britain has a heritage of cottage-style homes which can be traced back to the second half of the 19th century, which became the prevailing style in the years immediately preceding the First World War, and which virtually monopolized housebuilding in the inter-war period. Examples of these houses from the Edwardian age are rightly prized by their owners, and their descendants from the 1920s and 30s can now be reappraised with an objectivity that was impossible even a generation ago. Understanding the Edwardian and Inter-war House will be indispensable for those embarking on a major renovation, authentic restoration, maintenance, or improvement of houses of this period. It looks at the historical background and description of dwelling types, the constructional anatomy of Edwardian and Inter-war houses, modern movement houses, and alterations and improvements.
