1926 Standard House Plans: The Cornell

The Cornell is a cute, clipped-gable cottage in a Colonial Revival Cape Cod style. A low bungalow roof line sets it apart from its New England antecents. Symmetrical, with a pedimented porch roof supported by two columns on each side, the entry is substantial and elegant. A single story with 1342 square feet, the Cornell charms with a simple, but functional floor plan. Rooms are generously sized. Amenities include linen closets for each bedroom, French doors separating the living and dining rooms, and a respectable kitchen with a breakfast nook and walk-in pantry. The room flow is practical and functional. It would be a comfortable and serviceable home for a small family in any decade.

"True peace and enduring happiness are found only by those who unselfishly see to develop the best in themselves and in others. The most natural place for such growth and influence is in the individual home where inner strength is constantly developed by conscious freedom, and fear is shut out and destroyed by a sacred purpose."
