1926 Standard House Plans: The Irving

The pretty little Irving is small in size with just 816 square feet, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in coziness. It's a bungalow cottage graced by a hip roof, two gable dormers, and a large front porch. Each porch column is composed of four smaller posts for a charming, somewhat airy effect. Inside, the rooms are generally quite small. Two bedrooms and a full bath provide the private space needed in a starter home. The simple layout of rooms wastes little space. The open archway between the dining and living rooms and plenty of windows keeps both rooms from seeming too small.

When a normal woman comes to herself at the age of twenty, twenty-two, or twenty-four, according to her physical and mental growth, she realizes that her highest ambition is for a home of her own, affection and children, but her happiness is never complete until the love and home she wins is hers by all equitable and legal rights."
