The 2009 edition of the BAHA Preservation Awards is online.

This year, the winners’ range of ages and styles is broader than ever. The oldest house was built in 1890, the youngest in 1993. Architectural styles vary from Victorian to ultra-modern, from Arts & Crafts to International Style. Among the honorees are three apartment buildings, a cottage built of Thermotite, a dwelling clad in plywood, and another that used to be plywood-clad but is now partially covered with modular cement panels.

These award-winning projects are a credit to the spirit and ingenuity of their owners, designers, and craftspeople, and an example to us all.
