1926 Standard House Plans: The Orlando

The Orlando is a good example of the Spanish Eclectic style popular during the 1920s, especially in California, the Southwest, and Texas. The flat roof, use of tile, arched doorway at the entry, and stucco fit with the climate and history of the areas. Similar homes were built throughout the US. A small house for young couples or very small families, the plan with 1064 square feet, has two modest bedrooms, bath, a respectable living room with a fireplace, kitchen, breakfast nook, and dining room. A covered front porch made a convenient outdoor room for watching the world go by.

"In all parts of the country the demand for small Spanish bungalows is growing and The Orlando is offered as typical of the inexpensive type being constructed in many sections. The coziness of the exterior effect is at once admitted by all and the construction is such as to provide coolness in summer and warmth in winter."
