It has required years of painstaking effort...to bring before prospective home builders the hundreds of practical, money saving ideas offered by this system... A little study of each plan shown will convince any thoughtful person that these are, in reality, the most carefully planned homes in America. — Better Homes at Lower Cost
Faithfully reprinted from the Standard Homes Company's popular Better Homes at Lower Cost, this collection of early twentieth-century house plans was created with a simple system of standardization that allowed 1920s-era home builders to reduce construction costs while maintaining the integrity of an attractive and soundly built abode. Scores of excellent photographs, drawings, and floor plans depict seventy-seven meticulously detailed homes of wood, brick, stucco, and stone. From the substantial beauty of the eight-room "Homestead" and the classic colonial "Cambridge" to the spacious Spanish-style "Ponce de Leon," this is a rare and delightful time capsule for builders, home preservationists, architects, and readers interested in nostalgia and vintage home illustrations.
