Paul not only pos­sessed an ex­ten­sive work­ing knowl­edge of ar­chi­tec­tural, in­te­rior, and land­scape de­sign, but also was one of the most charm­ing DQG HQWKXVLDVWLF LQGLYLGXDOV LQ WKH ƬHOG Hon­ored for restora­tion work on projects in Cal­i­for­nia and else­where, Paul wrote a se­ries of ground­break­ing books on res­i­den­tial Arts & Crafts ar­chi­tec­ture with pho­tog­ra­pher Dou­glas Keis­ter, be­gin­ning with The Bun­ga­low: Amer­ica’s Arts & Crafts Home in 1995. Paul’s sem­i­nars at the an­nual Arts & Crafts con­fer­ences at the Grove Park Inn in Asheville were al­ways packed. He was a long-time mem­ber of Artis­tic Li­cense, a group of skilled pro­fes­sion­als work­ing in ar­chi­tec­tural restora­tion in the tra­di­tion of his­toric guilds. The Re­vival will never be the same with­out Paul.
