1926 Standard House Plans: The Glendale

The Glendale bungalow is only about 1650 square feet but looks substantial. The massive sloping porch columns, exposed roof beams and rafters, all attest to the heavily Craftsman influence. A shed roof over the bump out wall expands the dining room and adds exterior interest. Inside minimal use of hallways maximizes usable square footage. The kitchen with breakfast nook is quite large. The living room with it's fireplace is good sized, but not huge and is extended by French doors to an adjacent sun parlor. The house has four bedrooms with three upstairs with a full bath and the fourth with a half bath downstairs just off the dining room. Alternately, the downstairs bedroom would make a good den. The traffic floor is a tight circle from room to room on the main floor, but direct.

"The human mind is a most powerful magnet, and never fails to attract to us those things and conditions on which our hearts are earnestly and constantly centered. The Glendale is within reach of him who wills and fears not the petty thorns of scrifice, knowing that these will be forgotten or remembered with delight when the goal is finally realized."
