From the Author
Are Martha's Vineyard Plans for you? Can these plans be built in other places? The answer is Yes. The traditions of New England architecture have historically been translated and transported to other places in the world wherever wooden residences are built. We have a varied climate here that ranges from the hot, humid, barefoot days of August through the hurricanes of September which bring with them winds in excess of one hundred miles and hour and rain driven horizontally like bullets, testing every flashing. The damp, cold days and nights of December lead to the snow laden subfreezing winter weather of February. Like ships at sea, the homes of the Island are built to withstand the weather, and like those same ships, they can travel to other places where they can shelter you.

Instead, I was very disappointed to find out that it's an architectural firm's catalog listing plans to order.
