    Classic Home 037

    ArchWeek Image

    Exterior overview of Classic Home 037, designed by George W. Repp, Architect.

    "The wide-spread gables, the dormer, the overhanging eaves, and the low broad porch suggest the origin of this type in the Southwest, where protection from the summer sun is always welcome. The roof line is very pleasing with its low, rambling sweep, and the porch is made somewhat secluded by the pleasing brick parapet which could lend itself to artistic treatment. The floor plan is carefully arranged for the maximum utility of space, and a basement is provided with laundry, heating apparatus, vegetable cellar, and storage rooms. Face brick exterior."

    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.
