Overview

Originally published in 1925 by the Harris, McHenry & Baker Company of Elmira, New York, this authentic plan book advertises 101 "modern homes," selected from several thousand submitted designs. Chosen for aesthetic appeal as well as utility of arrangement and economy of construction, the houses encompass a truly impressive array of sizes and styles. Now this meticulous reproduction of the company's plan book offers modern readers a look back at these charming residential homes of the 1920s.
Detailed floor plans with measurements and an actual photograph of the completed dwelling accompany each model. Designs include "The Stratford," a Tudor-style brick-and-stucco home with a library and servants' quarters; "The Northcliff," a three-bedroom Dutch colonial with a sun parlor; "The Belvedere" and "The Strathmore," attractive two-family homes; and many others.
Invaluable for restoring residences remodeled in the past, this handy volume will be of particular interest to owners of houses built in the 1920s as well as to restorers and preservationists in search of authentic plans.
