Jeremiah Sullivan built this home for himself in 1818, at the age of 24. He went on to become a member of Indiana’s legislature and eventually a member of the Indiana Supreme Court. His design represents an elegantly simple solution to the problem of building a graceful home on a constricted city lot. As it stands, it has windows on all four sides, but with minor adaptations could be built as a rowhouse.

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. These plans are ideal for a flat site. The house is built over a full basement. The first floor consists of an entry hall with stairs, 3 reception rooms and a kitchen in a string from front to back. A porch along the back two rooms improves light and ventilation for this long, narrow plan. The second floor contains 4 rooms and a bath. The back two rooms could be made into a bed/bath suite. Over the front portion of the house there is an attic that could serve as an additional bedroom, study or play space. This house would be very suitable on a narrow city lot. This house has outside dimensions of approximately 32’ x 75’.

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.

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.

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS PLEASE NOTE: Orders shipped to addresses outside the USA may be subject to customs duties at their destination. The buyer is responsible for any such duties.

The original drawings from which these dimensionally accurate scans were made are kept at the Historic American Building Survey, in the Library of Congress.
