    Classic Home 026

    ArchWeek Image

    Exterior overview of Classic Home 026, designed by George H. Schwan, Architect.

    "The most interesting point about this house is the manner in which the main roof slope is continued down over the porch. The effect gained thereby is quite pleasing and gives an opportunity for a larger room on the second floor. The living room has two features; the fireplace in the front end and the open stairway in the rear. The two bedrooms on the second floor are large and well arranged. Although the illustration shows the use of brick, this house might be built of stucco over hollow tile, or of other construction materials."

    From 500 Small Houses of the Twenties, complied by Henry Atterbury Smith, from "The Books of a Thousand Homes," copyright 1923. The 1990 edition is published by Dover Publications, ISBN 0-486-26300-2.
