Yosemite Valley, one of America's beautiful National Parks, contains several lovely examples of Craftsman style buildings, mostly built as residences for Valley caretakers and guests. They are built in a rustic style, employing local materials and simple, rough hewn forms. Construction started on the central portion of the Cedar Cottage, a wood framed, 2 story guest house, in 1859. Later it was extended with a "tree room" engulfing the base of a nearby Cedar tree. This unusual, rustic room has the tree growing right through its roof. A massive fireplace of granite matches the character of the rest of the room. Cedar Cottage itself consists of a ground floor dining room and kitchen with 6 more minimal bedrooms, each opening out onto the wraparound porch. The second floor consists entirely of bedrooms.

IMPORTANT - IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO BUILD: These plans are NOT complete architectural drawings as will be required by your local permitting agency and do not contain all the structural, waterproofing and other details and information necessary for construction. Nor are they designed to meet current building codes. These are measured drawings of actual historic American homes that provide accurate design information about these homes. Your local builder or architect should be able to adapt these drawings and add to them as necessary.
