Benjamin Abbott built the core of this spacious farmhouse in 1685. It was expanded several times over the following centuries, eventually encompassing 7 bedrooms, 2 kitchens, a shed and a barn. It is a classic timber frame home, with clapboard siding and a wood shingle roof.
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 39' x 60', excluding the shed and barn.
SHIPPING: Your drawings are shipped to you, rolled, not folded, in a Priority Mail tube. 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 historic house, not a pseudo-historic tract house as you will find in the house plan magazines on your supermarket shelf.
