Description: Plans are for two additions to a two-story, clapboard house. The drawings consist of east and south elevations with alternate plans, and floor plans for the first and second levels, and cellar. Included on the first floor are a solarium or sun parlor, living room, music room, hall, and porch. The second floor consists of a sleeping porch and roof. The cellar plan shows that the cellar is unexcavated with twelve inch concrete trench walls. The solarium has a tile floor.
The house no longer exists today. The street name on some of the plans is North Whitney St., but the name of the street was changed to Whitney St. sometime after the home was built. Some of the stamps do not have any hand written material indicating the Job No., Drawing No, or Date, as well as APPROVED BY, and REVISED. There are also five different dates written on the stamps.
