John Adams Birthplace - before 1735
John Adams, second president of the United States was born in this house, to Deacon John and his wife Susanna. This home and the neighboring home (see my listing for John Quincy Adams) remained the home of the Adams' as the generations passed.
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 house has plenty of space on the ground floor for Living Room, Dining Room, kitchen/family room and a ground floor bedroom and bath. The second floor comfortably accommodates 2 bed/bath suites or 2 bedrooms, a bath and a study/play area. That attic is high enough that it could be finished space as well. This house is suited to a flat or low slope site. It would be comfortable in a suburb or country setting. The house has outside dimensions of approximately 42'x42'.

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 Colonial Saltbox Style home, not a pseudo-saltbox tract house as you will find in the house plan magazines on your supermarket shelf.
