1926 Standard House Plans: The Olive

Of the Standard models in 1926, the Olive contains more Craftsman detail than most of the other bungalows offered. Elements include a full front porch with a hipped roof on the front gabled house. Knee braces, exposed rafters, half timbering, and a shed dormer are all in evidence. The four bedroom/one bath floor plan has about 1400 square feet. Amenities include a large living room with fireplace and French doors to the adjoining dining room. The kitchen has a walk-in pantry and breakfast nook. The stairs to the second floor have a landing shared with stairs from the kitchen. The fourth bedroom opens off the dining room and would just as easily serve as a den or sitting room. As with most older homes, there isn't a lot of in room storage, but in this model there is a fair amount of under eave storage space available. You just need a map so you can keep track of whats back in those dark corners.

"Upon every face is written the record of the life the man or woman has lived and present thoughts and conditions are clearly shown in the voice and manner. Careworn faces and voices with discordant notes seldom emerge from happy new homes like The Olive, in which the very walls are respondent with mutual interest, sympathy, confidence and affection.
