Jones Creole Cottage - 1847
The Jones house, built in 1847, is a rare example of a well-preserved plantation house in the Isle Brevelle area, one of the most prominent free people of color enclaves in antebellum Louisiana. One of Louisiana's most outstanding examples of Creole architecture, it has many well-preserved features, such as the all-encompassing roof, large gallery porch extending the length of the house and unusual decorative features such as wrap-around mantels.
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. These plans are ideal for a flat, suburban or country site. The house contains 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, all on the ground floor. For a more informal, country lifestyle the living room, dining room and kitchen could be opened up to each other. There is also a convenient back entry off the kitchen. This house would be comfortable in a suburban or country setting. This house has outside dimensions of approximately 44' x 76'.

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.
