The Tudor Revival was a very popular style for homes, especially country houses, from the 1860s through the 1920s. It was an eclectic blend of Gothic and early English Renaissance styles with half-timber construction. Compared to other styles of the Victorian period it was relatively simple. It epitomized the informal, picturesque tendencies of the time, using a profusion of gables and a mixture of materials, often with brick or stone on the lower levels and exposed timber above.

"Red Rocks", The White Residence - 1889 & 1920

"Red Rocks" was the home of journalist and editor William Allen White. His home is a beautiful example of the Tudor style, one of the many styles that was popularly revived around the turn of the century. The Kansas City architects Wight and Wight provided a design that skillfully mixed a broad range of materials, stone, brick, half-timber (stucco and wood) and a slate roof. The house, as it appears in these drawings, reflects extensive remodeling that was done in the 1920s after a fire destroyed the original roof.

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 first floor consists of a large Living Room with several sitting areas, a large Dining Room, a Kitchen with 2 pantries and a WC. A large trellised porch opens off the Living Room. The second floor consists of 5 bedrooms and 2 � baths. There is room for an additional 3-4 bedrooms in the attic. The house is built over a full basement. Pergolas lead to a carport that accommodates 1 car. 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. Excluding porches and pergolas, the main house has outside dimensions of approximately 36'6"x63'. More space would be needed to accommodate the porches and pergola.

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 Tudor Style home, not a pseudo-Tudor tract house as you will find in the house plan magazines on your supermarket shelf. (TU001)
