Calef Creole Cottage - 1852
This delightful house captures elements of both the Creole cottage, with its informal plan focused around a front porch, and the high style of a southern plantation home, with its elegants details and formality.
As a work of art these prints are worth purchasing in their own right. For those of you interested in building a historically inspired house, these plans offer an excellent starting point. The main level consists of 4 rooms centered around a central hallway, with a small wing off the back containing 2 additional rooms. These would make a fine ground floor bed/bath suite. The attic contains adequate space for 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. Although ideal for a flat site, these plans would also work on a moderately sloping one. This house would be comfortable in a suburb or country setting. Including porches, the main house has outside dimensions of approximately 50'x65'.

SHIPPING: Your drawings are shipped to you, by US Postal Service, rolled, not folded, in a Priority Mail tube.
IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO BUILD: These plans are NOT complete architectural drawings as might be required by your local permitting agency and do not contain all the structural, waterproofing and other details and information necessary for construction. But your local builder or architect should be able to adapt these drawings and add to them as necessary. What they do provide is accurate design information about a REAL Southern Style building, not a pseudo-southern tract house as you will find in the house plan magazines on your supermarket shelf.
