1937 Bildcost Home No. 602

Approx. 1000 sq. Ft. by Better Homes & Gardens

Better Homes & Gardens published a series of house plans during the 1930s called the "Bildcost Gardened Home Plans." This plan is just under 1000 sq. ft. but has a full cement basement. We like to imagine it with the board and batten siding and small paned windows, but would add a metal roof, cistern, and geothermal heating system to make it "perfect." Does this count as a small house? You be the judge. The siding on this house is 12-inch boards of 7/8" oak finished with linseed oil and "a very little brown stain to make the color golden oak."
