c. 1921 American Homes Beautiful by C. L. Bowes Co.

To our modern eye, floor plans of the early 20th century may seem small and odd, but the beauty of such modest homes was that they were affordable by many and pretty flexible in function. Though bedrooms like the one in this cottage that open from the living room seem like a design flaw, they often acted as a passage from room to room. That reduced the need for hallways which often resulted in wasted space. We'd reconfigure this plan slightly, but find the exterior with its snubbed gables charming nonetheless.
