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.

Marjory Stoneman Douglas Cottage - 1924

Journalist, writer, environmentalist and feminist, Marjory Stoneman Douglas, born in 1890, was a woman far ahead of her time. For most of her very long life she was a resident of Coconut Grove, Florida, where she built this delightful fairytale cottage in the Tudor/Gothic style.

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. This cottage is simple in plan and needs very few adaptations to bring it in line with modern expectations. It is a 2 bedroom plan, with a single large social space and a smaller study that adjoins both space and one of the bedrooms. It is a compact and efficient plan that could be built equally well in the city, suburb or countryside. The cottage has outside dimensions of approximately 32" x 46".

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. (TU003)
