The Harris cottage in Mineral Point, Wisconsin, is an exquisite little house, 4 rooms grouped around a central hall, built over a walk-out basement. It’s like a picture book image of a country cottage. Built around 1835, of stone and wood, it blends seamlessly into its environment.

The original drawings were beautifully delineated in 1935. This extensive set of 4 drawing sheets includes a cover sheet, two floor plans, 4 exterior elevations, and a page of beautifully drawn details. The original drawings rest in the Library of Congress.

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 moderate to steep sloping site, which would provide for a walk-out basement. The main level consists of 4 rooms, 2 on either side of a central stair hall. This house would be comfortable in a suburban or country setting. This house has outside dimensions of approximately 25’ x 35’.

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.

SHIPPING: Your drawings are shipped to you, rolled, not folded, in a Priority Mail tube. This listing includes architectural prints ONLY. Any photos shown in the description are for information only and are NOT included in your purchase. 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 Antebellum house, not a pseudo-historic tract house as you will find in the house plan magazines on your supermarket shelf
