This is a fine specimen of a Cape Cod "double house," and Dr. Ernest Allen Connally, HABS Architect and historian, in his survey of Cape Cod houses in the summer of 1959, reported that this was locally considered to be the best example on Cape Cod. He found that the house has been carefully restored and preserved by the owner, who has been on this project, among other things, since 1919. The house is located within the area of the proposed Cape Cod National Sea Shore.
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 spacious home has outside dimensions of approximately 28' x 43'.
Please visit my other listings 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.
SHIPPING: Your drawings are shipped to you, rolled, not folded, in a Priority Mail tube. This listing includes architectural prints ONLY. Any photos shown in the description are for information only and are NOT included in your purchase. Thanks.
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 Antebellum house, not a pseudo-historic tract house as you will find in the house plan magazines on your supermarket shelf
