House Plans From This Catalog
After World War II, there were millions of young families who took advantage of the GI Bill to purchase homes. Small starter homes were produced across America.
These house plans, designed and sold by National Plan Service, were typical of the type of minimal traditional (transitional) style that presaged the popular ranch that took the country by storm during the 1950s.
These homes were built not only as subdivisions in the burgeoning suburbs, but in ones and twos as homeowners of larger lots divided their own parcels with an eye to making a profit.
Although the first floor of this home offers complete housing facilities in itself, there is opportunity for future enlargement by using the attic for two bedrooms and a bath, as the plan below suggests.
The exterior walls are of frame construction with inclusion of stone veneer on part of the front wall to add a contrasting modern note.
The desirable characteristics of the ranch or rambling type of home have been combined with the modern colonial lines of this one story home. Note that the front bedroom is quite large and will accommodate twin beds. The living room has a natural fireplace and picture window. This home is available with or without basement.
