1926 Standard House Plans: The Gordon

Like many of Standard's homes in 1926, the Gordon is a bungalow cottage. With it's hip-on-gable roof, centered gable dormer, and broad front porch, it incorporates many of the typical bungalow features. Traditional elements like the decorative railings and columns, echo the Colonial Revival style that was so popular at the time. It's a small house with just two bedrooms, but a cozy 1056 square feet. The floor plan is nearly identical to the Chelton and has the same idiosyncrasies. A bump out in the dining room provides a little more space and interest.

"Keeping young is simply a question of keeping joy and sunshine in the heart. Age cannot furrow the heart which is daily, monthly and yearly bathed in the sunshine of conjugal peace. The sun never ceases to shine for those who constantly cultivate the spirt of calmness, kindness, courtesy, and cheerfulness in homes like The Gordon."
