Authentic Historical Designs, LLC was begun by two partners, Cecilia Reese Bullock and Mike Stephens. Each has over twenty-five years of experience in the historical house plan business. Authentic Historical Designs, LLC specializes in creating house plans for people who love old houses but want the location, convenience and amenities of new construction.
Located in Jackson, Mississippi, the company is nationally respected for its dedication to authenticity. Designs are composed of elements and features that re-capture the charm and ambience of turn-of-the-century houses. While their homes really do look like older homes, all floor plans are designed to accommodate modern lifestyles.
Historical Replications Inc, was founded in 1977 by homebuilder Cecilia Reese Bullock. The company’s designs are inspired by actual old houses, either from Victorian pattern books, or from the thousands of photographs and books the firm collects. All plans reflect the company’s emphasis on exact proportions and details.
Historical Replications, Inc is nationally acclaimed for having the most influence in making historical American architecture popular in the new housing market. Its plans have been published since 1984 in such prestigious publications as Professional Builder, Homeplanners, Country Living, Homestyles, Home, and Old House Journal, House Beautiful, and Better Homes and Gardens, and more.
Both Cecilia and Mike bring a rich and varied construction background to the house plans that they create. Mike Stephens, head of the custom design department, has been involved in residential as well as commercial projects, both as designer and builder.
