The Peak House, in Medfield, Massachusetts, is an extraordinarily well preserved example of an early colonial timber frame home. It was built around 1680 and retains early colonial features such as casement rather than double hung windows and a massive brick fireplace.
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 house is the epitome of a cottage, with 1 medium sized and one small room (possible kitchen) on the ground level. A tight staircase leads to the attic, suitable for a single bedroom and bath. This house is suited to a flat or low slope site. It would be comfortable in a suburb or country setting. The house has outside dimensions of approximately 15’x 24’.
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.
