Woodhills, by the San Jose, California architecture firm of Wolfe and Wolfe, brought the Shingle Style into the 20th century, with its flat roofs, trellises, rectilinear form and low, ground hugging mass. The interior is surprisingly bright and the flow of space from room to room and from indoors to outdoors presages the new developments in design the new century was to bring.
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. Most of the rooms are on the main level, including a very large Living Room, a Dining Room, a Kitchen, 4 Bedrooms and 2 Bathrooms. There is one room on the second level, which also provides access to roof decks. This house is built on a moderately sloping site but could be altered to work on a flat site as well. This house would be comfortable in a suburb or country setting. Including porches, the main house has outside dimensions of approximately 62’x65’.
Please visit my other auctions 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.
