1926 Standard House Plans: The Parkwood

The Parkwood is a small bungalow cottage of just 1092 square feet. The low pitched, hip-on-gable roof and simple clapboarded house is unprepossessing. A pretty covered porch set off center adds visual interest from the street view and window boxes bring it to life. For a small house, the living room is generous and a colonnaded bookcase between the dining room and living room enlarges the perception of the space. Two small bedrooms are located on either side of the bathroom. Built in cupboards and a breakfast nook add extra functionality.

"It is a wonderful privilege to forget the unfortunate experiences and hideous images of yesterday and begin life anew in a home like The Parkwood. Happiness is for those who have the faculty to forget and live a new life daily "now and here," and nowhere is there such an opportunity for a full, new life as there is in a new home."
