Dear VAF members,

Welcome to the Spring edition of the Vernacular Architecture Newsletter (VAN). This quarterly issue is dedicated to field schools, with a number of field school announcements as well as several alumni from field schools reflecting on their experiences.   You will also find information on how to use a really powerful feature of our new website, the member forums.  It is a place to put in timely announcements, start discussions, or look for roommates at a conference. So take a look and sign up to stay in touch.

Also in response to some readers suggestions, I have made some improvements to the format of the newsletter this quarter, which hopefully make it easier to read.  You can browse titles and click on individual stories in this e-mail as before, or you can click on this link and scroll through the entire newsletter from top to bottom.

Our conference in Chicago is just around the corner June 3-7 and selling out fast. Don't forget to check out the dynamic conference website for our VAF conference in Chicago  Hope to see you there!

As always, I would like to invite any member to submit an article, news, or resource that you would like to share.  Please feel free to send them to me at  The newsletter is a great way to share your ongoing research or resources you have found useful in your practice.

Thanks so much, and happy reading!
