The Dover is an All American Cape Cod style with four bedrooms and one bath. There are two bedrooms, which are relatively small, on the main floor as well as the bathroom. The entry opens directly to the living room which is visually connected to the dining room, though separated by an arch. Two slightly larger bedrooms are upstairs. The building's symmetry is established by a broad, covered front porch with two sets of ribbon windows, one on each side of the entry. Two gabled dormers reinforce the formal balance. The Dover is a common and beloved American style small house plan.
"The feeling of aloneness is almost entirely unknown in small, comfortable homes like The Dover. Mental depression comes, as a rule, from tired nerves and unsightly surroundings. In the small home which ahs been provided with an abundance of light, life is more cheerful and housekeeping is a pleasure, provided the husband daily expresses his appreciation."
