HISTORY: John L. Edwards arrived in the USA from Wales in 1855, and within a short time was a prominent cattle rancher in northern Utah. He served as both a mayor for Willard, and as a bishop for the Church of the Latter Day Saints. This beautiful house appears to have been built in 2 phases, with sun dried brick in one portion and wood frame in the other. The whole was eventually given a unifying finish of stucco and decorated charmingly with Victorian Gothic wood details.
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, though it could be adapted to a low sloping site as well. This house would be comfortable in a suburban or country setting. This spacious home has outside dimensions of approximately 38' x 45', which includes porches.

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.
