1926 Standard House Plans: The Rosemary

The miniscule Rosemary is the smallest house in the Standard 1926 catalog. With only 572 square feet, it's hard to imagine a house the size of some studio apartments. It is a side-gabled cottage with a Greek Revival character as demonstrated by the entry with its pediment and columns. Though space could be allocated somewhat differently, especially from the perspective of 80 years later, it, nevertheless, has dollhouse charm.

"All things beautiful are born of love--sometime, somewhere. The artist who fashioned The Rosemary must have been inspired by the influence of a kindred heart and yearned for a place of repose--a little kingdom of their own, far removed from the world of Commercialism, where men clamor blindly for gold and women are swayed by false flattery."
