Plans for a "Club House"
The Garrison colonial, where the second story hangs over the first story level, was popular in colonial New England. This three-bedroom neo or new colonial style "affords the most living area for the building dollar," according to advertisements for the plan.
Why is this a Neocolonial style?
- Inspired by Garrison colonial style, but without rigid adoption
- Side gabled roof
- Two stories
- Different exterior siding delineating first floor from second floor
- Decorative shutters
- Modern features, such as a variety of window designs, including a front bay
See Neoeclectic Homes in Suburbia for an introduction to these mid-century home designs.
