This is an example of a two-storey home, or Lount’s Basic Plan No. 6. The original footprint of the building was 24 by 36 feet or approximately 1,700 square feet. There were restrictions in the size of newly constructed homes at this time, town planning ordinances dictated that a minimum floor space for one and one-half storey homes was 700 square feet and 1,050 for two-storey homes. These minimum requirements are significantly smaller than the floor area in the Lount designed homes.
To the left of the front entrance and vestibule is a formal living room and on the opposite side of the generous centre hall is a bonus den or rumpus room. This informal room is in a separate volume and set in front of the main mass of the home. The rear of the first floor contains both the kitchen and dining room, and a stair to the mechanical space in the basement and to the bedrooms above.
|Windows:||On the front of the first floor there are two large lights: one is operable and the other is non-operable. On the second floor there is a relatively smaller operable window.|
|Materials:||Most of the house is clad in the white stucco common to the Silver Heights subdivision, except for the second floor, which is covered in painted horizontal wood siding.|
