    CLASSIC HOME 025

    "This is a charming example of the half-timbered stucco house. Two very attractive features are the solarium and sleeping porch. Neither is conspicuous and ugly from the outside, but each is a real part of the design, and is kept so by the use of properly divided lights in the casements. The solarium is really an alcove off the living room, separated only by a cased opening, and at each side of it a glazed door leads to the lawn. The floor plan has been carefully worked out and affords many special features." — Published 2002.0403

    CLASSIC HOME 024

    "Here is a fine Western type of house which is suitable for a comparatively small lot. The porch, included in the floor plan, forms an outdoor vestibule for the entrance to the large living room, in which there is a cheerful fireplace. The opening into the dining room might be widened, if desired, to turn almost the entire first floor into one room. A Colonial stairway leads to the second floor. Face brick walls."

    CLASSIC HOME 023

    "It would be hard to find an eight-room home of more distinctive appearance than this half-timbered English house with its hooded formal entrance and out-jutting second-story bays. The steep roof, grouped casements, and tiled chimneys are characteristic of the type. The huge sun parlor at the side is an American idea which has been cleverly handled. In fact, the entire floor plan is strictly in accord with American ideals. In the living room there is a fireplace, flanked by glazed doors leading to the sun porch." — Published 2002.0306

    CLASSIC HOME 022

    "Here is a five-room house which may be built on a 40-foot (12-meter) lot, facing in any direction. The illustration shows 4-inch (130-millimeter) siding as the main exterior material, with shingled gables and roof, foundation of concrete blocks, and piers of brick. Besides the three windows with the flower box beneath them, there are two other windows in the living room. The inter-room opening makes the dining room and living room one large room, while also serving as bookcase. The combination sideboard and dresser is convenient." — Published 2002.0227

    CLASSIC HOME 021

    "The simple Western lines of this house are enriched by a pleasing brick pattern in the porch gable and by the pergola which forms a delightful feature when covered with rambling vines. Six rooms and a sleeping porch, which is virtually an extra bedroom, with a den that could serve as another bedroom, make this a small house for a large family, and the floor plan has been carefully worked out."

    CLASSIC HOME 020

    "Admirers of pure Colonial architecture will find this a splendid example of its use in a modern home. The beautifully proportioned dormers do not mar the simple roof. The entrance is an unusually fine example of modern reproduction of old Colonial work. The main part of the plan is 36 feet 8 inches (11.2 meters) wide by 25 feet 10 inches (7.9 meters) deep, with the kitchen in an ell at the rear. Above the kitchen are a maid’s room and bath. The construction is of frame with shingle roof." — Published 2002.0206

    CLASSIC HOME 019

    "This Spanish type of bungalow, so well liked in some states, is fast gaining popularity throughout the country. This one may be fitted to any frontage desired but retains the outlook on the garden, through the patio. The color and texture of the brickwork will be determined greatly by the location. A tile, slate, or other substantial roof is recommended. All rooms have exposure on two sides, giving the maximum of light, air, and outlook. Some special features are built-in bookcase and china cabinets." — Published 2002.0130

    CLASSIC HOME 018

    "This charming Colonial home could be built on a narrow city lot to good advantage. Preferably it should set back from the street, as the sketch indicates. The exterior treatment is stucco on backplastered metal lath; roof of stained wood shingles or slate. The combined living and dining room is large and well lighted. There are also plenty of blank wall spaces for the placing of furniture. Two large bedrooms, bathroom, and many closets occupy the second story. The space taken up by stairs and hall is reduced to the minimum." — Published 2002.0123

    CLASSIC HOME 017

    "Here is a small house with real architectural merit. The fine chimney, the roof, the gabled porch, the proportion of height to length and breadth, and the fenestration combine into a very pleasing whole. The large square porch forms a complete protection for the entrance, which leads directly into the ample living room. A closet for a disappearing bed practically makes of the living room another bedroom when occasion demands. A short hall leads to the dining room and kitchen, and it connects the bedroom with the bath. Exterior is of face brick." — Published 2002.0116

    CLASSIC HOME 016

    "This Dutch Colonial home has nine main rooms, counting the servants’ quarters in the attic, and three bathrooms. The living room end of the house is particularly well arranged for entertaining in that the large living room opens onto a spacious open porch. This porch is built to represent a pergola but in reality has a roof over it. The owner’s bedroom has a private bath as well as two closets. The other three main bedrooms are all equipped with ample closet space. The exterior walls and roof are of shingles." — Published 2002.0109
