This book created a new idea in house plan service. All the plans shown could be purchased as working blueprints, but the company also furnished a model of any of the houses in the book, made of solid wood and carefully carved to an exact scale, in full color and on a solid landscaped background, including a hand colored floor plan. The model served as a very desirable ornament in the home after it was purchased. Included homes designed for narrow lots, a duplex cottage, ranch homes, and Colonials. An attractive pattern book.
