    CLASSIC HOME 006

    "The treatment of the roof is an interesting feature of this house. The main gable roof includes the porch and the front part of the house, with supplementary gables over the projections at each side. Another gable, at right angles, covers the rear part. The dormer and windows at each side light the attic. One feature of this plan that is seldom found in bungalows is a long living room with windows on three sides. A group of three windows at each side of the front entrance, and at each side a group of two windows, make it a delightful place." — Published 2001.1003

    CLASSIC HOME 005

    "Here is a type of high-gabled stucco house which has proven particularly appealing in the attractive suburban districts of the eastern United States. The design is of English character accentuated by the half-timbered work in the large gable. The exterior is of stucco and the roofing is of copper, slate, or asbestos-cement shingles in varying colors. — Published 2001.0926

    CLASSIC HOME 004

    'It is difficult to imagine a more beautiful house than this one of Colonial design. The trellised entrance porch with seats surely would invite one to come in. The living room is lighted from three sides and opens onto a large porch through French doors. The arrangement of dining room, kitchen, and pantry tends to make the preparation and serving of a meal a pleasure rather than drudgery. The exterior finish of side walls is shingles or wide Colonial siding.' — Published 2001.0919

    CLASSIC HOME 003

    This attractive seven-room dwelling has an exterior of stucco with some half-timbered work in the gables. This house was published originally in the Small House Page of the New York Tribune in 1923, and received extremely favorable comment. Many persons indicated interest in building the house because of its impressive but practical character for a dwelling of such limited size. — Published 2001.0905

    CLASSIC HOME 002

    This plan indicates a dwelling somewhat like a compact four-room house, but providing considerably more living space. Exterior construction is straightforward stucco, and the use of Spanish-type garden walls is indicated as adding considerably to the size and architectural effect of the house. On the first floor there is a dining room, where the four room house would just have an alcove, and upstairs is a cozy deck.

    CLASSIC HOME 001

    This an economically-built square type of home. The exterior has simple lines with principal walls of siding. The brick foundation and porch walls afford an opportunity to use color. The expense of the small roofs over the second story and attic windows might be saved without detracting from the appearance of the house. The reception hall serves as a vestibule. There is an impressive stairway to the second floor. There is a pretty bay in the dining room. — Published 2001.0822
