Detailed Description

Moving Sam Maloof: Saving an American Woodworking Legend's Home and Workshops. Author, Ann Kovara

World-class woodworker Sam Maloof (1916-2009), the first craftsperson to receive a MacArthur Foundation grant, inhabited his family compound in Alta Loma, California, for 45 years until the State of California decided that a new highway was needed, and that the Maloof homestead was in the way. The result was the move, between 1998 and 2001, of the historic residence, two woodworking studios, guesthouse, and twenty trees to a new site three miles away.

As it explores the human side of historic preservation, the book explains how Sam, a beleaguered but plucky elderly California Living Treasure and master woodworker, survives his historic property's relocation by the government. Construction manager and architect Ann Kovara relates this true story of how progress and tradition, public needs and private lives, managed to reach an accord.
