Hinckley - 1886
The Hinckley residence spreads comfortably across its large suburban lot, nearly every room enjoying multiple views. The floor plan has the order of a Victorian house combined with a flow of space that hints at oncoming architectural innovations. Porches, gables, turrets and a massive chimney lend romance to this suburban home.
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 an entry/stair hall, 2 parlors, a dining room, a family room a half-bath and a kitchen. The second floor contains 5 bedrooms and 3 baths. The attic contains an additional 3 bedrooms and bath. This house is built on a flat site. This house would be comfortable in a suburb or country setting. Including porches, the main house has outside dimensions of approximately 66'x74'.

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