1916 Ideal Homes in Garden Communities

1916 Design 30 from Ideal Homes in Garden Communities

"An unquestionably homelike little bungalow, its unpretentiousness probably appeals more to women than to men. The use of brackets supporting the eaves, the curve of the porch ramps and the snubbed corners of the roof soften the outline of the house and with the assistance of shrubbery at the base tie it naturally to the ground. The feeling that it "belongs" is one not frequently sensed. The floor plan is unusually excellent and entirely original. The bed rooms and bath have no immediate entrance to any other room and yet are very readily accessible. The kitchen on the side insures privacy in the rear."

This plan has some very pleasing features including a walk-in closet and dressing room, built-in buffet in the dining room, and a breakfast nook. The room flow is incorporated into the bedrooms and by eliminating a couple doors, a bit more storage space could be secured. This plan was estimated to cost between $1800 and $2100 to build in 1916.
