Brent Hull, Author

Author Brent Hull’s “Building a Timeless House in an Instant Age” tracks the evolution of new home construction from the pre-industrial age to the present day. He reminds us how old-world craftsmanship and traditional building methods can make a legacy house.

“Traditional American Rooms” is a visual feast of Colonial period architectural millwork at historic Winterthur, the Dupont Estate in Wilmington Delaware.

“The Historic Millwork Guide” is the definitive source for period moldings 1870-1940. In this book Brent Hull applies his hands-on experience as a home builder and millwork craftsman in a compelling narrative.
