    CLASSIC HOME 015

    "Here we have another type of Western exterior in which the seven rooms have been well arranged. This plan, being rectangular in shape with one bearing partition through the middle, is very simple in construction, so that the house can be built for less than a smaller one that has a number of angles and breaks in its outline. This house need not be built on a level lot, as it is adaptable to a site which slopes either from front to rear or from one side to the other." — Published 2001.1219

    CLASSIC HOME 013

    "Here is a well planned four-room bungalow. The wide siding and vertical batten strips, with overhanging eaves and exposed rafter ends, create a rustic impression for the exterior that is novel and artistic. One may enter the living room from the stoop or from the porch. This room extends across the entire end of the house. Instead of an ordinary dining room there is a sunny little breakfast room, separated from the kitchen by a broad opening."

    CLASSIC HOME 012

    "The porch on this house is the principal external feature. Although it extends along two sides of the living room, it does not darken that room, which has a fine group of windows at the uncovered side. The front part of the porch may he glassed in, if desired, and made into a sun parlor, as French doors connect it with the living room. The open fireplace on the porch will make it a delightful spot on autumn days. The kitchen is particularly well arranged, and the provision of a lavatory on the first floor is a convenient feature. Face brick exterior." — Published 2001.1128

    CLASSIC HOME 011

    "Another carefully planned six-room Colonial frame house. No little attractiveness is added to this design by the long roof slope broken by a dormer section. Here again a small amount of space is used for the entrance hall and the stairs become an architectural feature of the living room. French doors give access to a large porch off the living room, and a pantry is a valuable additional service feature. Three sizeable bedrooms and bath are well arranged."

    CLASSIC HOME 010

    "Here is another of the popular Colonial type of houses. On the exterior, 10-inch (25-centimeter) siding is used, with brick for the well-balanced chimneys. Notice, too, the excellent proportions of the well-shaped dormers that break the gentle slope of the shingle roof. Slender porch columns and six-panel doors are also true to type. Although there are two stories, the impression is of a cottage. The central-hall type of floor plan is used. Frame construction throughout."

    CLASSIC HOME 009

    "Here is a design that will stand out among any group of houses as an example of fine architectural composition. As shown below, broadside to the street, it would require a frontage of 50 feet (15 meters), in order to give ample room on the sides. If, however, it is desired to turn the house endwise, with the living room and porch toward the street, it may be placed upon a 40-foot (12-meter) lot, leaving sufficient room for a driveway. If desired, the fireplace may open on the porch side." — Published 2001.1031

    CLASSIC HOME 008

    "The exterior of this house is particularly attractive. Long roof lines have heen 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." — Published 2001.1017

    CLASSIC HOME 007

    "There are pleasing proportions and attractive roof lines in this design. The house is extremely simple and would for that reason be inexpensive to build. All the rooms are well lighted from the sides, and in omitting the windows on the front, except for two small ones either side of the door, an individual character has been given the house. The house could be placed close to the street and the rear of the lot reserved for garden and lawn. The second floor is well supplied with closets." — Published 2001.1010
