Exterior overview of Classic Home 056, by George H. Schwan, Architect.
The exterior of this house is particularly attractive. Long roof lines have been obtained with very little sacrifice of usable space. The exterior walls are of common brick laid with wide joints, and the gables are of stucco and timber. The roof is of slate or other type of flat shingle. The entrance is from a large covered porch directly into the living room or into a small hall which provides access to living room, stairs, and kitchen. The second floor plan provides three well arranged bedrooms and a large linen closet.
