    Classic Home 029

    ArchWeek Image

    Exterior overview of Classic Home 029, designed by Frederick L. Ackerman, Architect.

    "Here is a plan that would solve the narrow-lot problem for many. Although it occupies small ground space this house has all the comforts of a home, even including a reception hall, coat closet, dining alcove, and towel closet. The fireplace is the center of interest in the living room and the casements at each side are high enough that permanent bookcases may be built in beneath them. The dining room has double windows on two sides, making it light and cheerful. There is a built-in sideboard which may also be used as a dresser from the kitchen."

    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.
