1926 Standard House Plans: The Stoddard

Another Colonial Revival, the Stoddard incorporates a few derivative Greek Revival characteristics. In addition to the wood clapboard siding and formal symmetry, there is a pedimented porch roof. Though it lacks the wide band of trim at the cornice line, there is a vestigial pilaster at the building's corners. An eyebrow window is centered with the front entry and chimney to enforce the symmetry despite a good size porch off to the side. The result is a pleasing visual dynamic. The 1340 square foot interior provides some interesting amenities including a corner storage closet in the bathroom, space for the refrigerator just off the kitchen, and a breakfast nook.

"The reward for a thing well done is to have done it. Homes built by others can never give us the inner satisfaction which comes as the reward for hours and weeks spent in the careful planning of a home of our own. In erecting The Stoddard in accordance with their ideals, many will learn with peculiar delight the care-joy of home building."
