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.

James D. Roberts House - 1859

James D. Roberts' efficient little 2 bedroom home captures the essence of the Carpenter Gothic style, with its scroll cut wood ornaments, steep roofs and most of all, its pointed arch windows.

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 plan is efficient and would require only a few small adjustments to bring it in line with modern expectations. The room marked as a bedroom on the ground floor could be combined with the adjacent "rear parlor" to make a kitchen/family room, leaving the "front parlor" available as a more traditional reception space. The second floor plan needs no improvements except a small increase in the size of the bathroom. Two dormers could be added to the north side of the house to bring additional light and headroom into the bedrooms. Dormers would be in keeping with the overal style of the house. This efficient and graceful Carpenter Gothic Style house plan could be built equally well in the city, suburb or countryside. It is suited for a narrow lot. The home has outside dimensions of approximately 24'x 35'.

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