El Molino Viejo was built around 1819 by the padres of the San Gabriel Mission, in Pasadena, California. The Southwestern style, which reached its heyday in the 1920s, was an eclectic mix of styles and sources, from Native American pueblo, to Mexican Mission, to Spanish Renaissance. Even elements of New England Colonial worked their way into the mix through the influence of schools and outposts built by the Federal government.

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 would work best on a moderately sloping site. The house has outside dimensions of approximately 47’ x 65’.

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.

The prints you are purchasing are crisp, high resolution black line copies on white bond paper. Any photos shown in the description are informational only and are NOT included in your purchase. The original, public domain drawings were prepared by the Historical American Building Survey and rest in the Library of Congress

IMP0RTANT - 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.
