The Ridgeland is a story and a half English type home in which the details of the front gable projection and a fireplace chimney play an important part in the exterior appearance. The outside walls are planned to be covered with 24-inch Red Cedar shingles laid with a wide exposure, and when stained a light gray or painted white, form a pleasing background with the dark colors on the shutters, roof and chimney. The shutters are batten type to match the circle head front door which is made more interesting by the use of ornamental iron hinges.
The gable projection at the front forms the necessary protection for the entrance and contains the vestibule. The first floor is a complete four room home in itself consisting of living room, dining room, bedroom, kitchen and bath. Many home builders appreciate the feature of a first floor bedroom which, if not needed, can be converted into a library, den or sun parlor.
While the exterior of this home has the appearance of a one story bungalow, the construction of the high pitched roof forms two large bedrooms, each with good head room and large closets.
The outside dimensions are 28 ft. wide by 24 ft. deep. Height of first floor ceilings, 8 ft. 3 in., second floor, 8 ft. Basement, 7 ft. from cellar floor to joists. Planned for full excavation to contain fuel, storage, furnace and laundry.
