The little Elwood contains all the charm of a bungalow, but in a compact footprint. Just a single floor of living space, but with attic storage, it is a small but functional home for a either a single homeowner or couple. Almost every square foot is functional living space with little waste. Little houses like the Elwood are often found along the coast as weekend beach houses.
"It is when a man's earnings are paying for a home like The Elwood for himself and family that he is willing to work overtime and on holidays. There is a resolute note in his voice and pride in his step seldom found in the man whose desire for a home has found no chance for expression in an undesirable and unsightly rented house."
