HISTORY: The Silas Wood House ... isn't that a great name, Silas Wood? ... based on construction techniques the principal part of the house appears to date from the early 18th century. But it clearly underwent many additions over time, to the point where it is now effectively 2 houses, the main section, a gambrel roofed 2 story house, with a sort of saltbox shaped smaller house attached to it. Either house could be an independent and separate house. Combined they make a spacious and informal family home with room enough to put up the in-laws for a long term visit. There are fine examples of Colonial woodwork throughout and this set of drawings provides plenty of beautiful details.

As a work of art these prints are worth purchasing in their own right. For those of you interested in building a historically inspired house, these plans offer an excellent starting point. The plan is ideally suited for a flat site. This house would be comfortable in a suburban or country setting. This home has outside dimensions of approximately 48' x 64', which includes porches.

Please visit my other listing for many other drawings I am offering. I have house plans in wide variety of styles including Colonial, Craftsman, and Prairie, as well as plans of architects such as Frank Lloyd Wright, Irving Gill, Purcell & Elmslie and others.

IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO BUILD: These plans are not complete architectural drawings as might be required by your local permitting agency and do not contain all the structural, waterproofing and other details and information necessary for construction. But your local builder or architect should be able to adapt these drawings and add to them as necessary. What they do provide is accurate design information about a REAL historic house, not a pseudo-historic tract house as you will find in the house plan magazines on your supermarket shelf
