Construction on this Harmon Street bungalow began in 1953. The main entrance of the home is on the side and is covered by a wood screen which supports the overhanging eave. The automobile influenced changes in the plan of the typical post-war single-family detached home. The front porch, which had been central in the design of homes in earlier neighbourhoods such as Wolsely or Crescentwood, and used as social centers, were unnecessary as communities now commuted to their homes instead of walking. The primary entrance to suburban homes shifted from the street side to a door nearest the carport or garage. Alternatively, a front entrance was provided, but used only for guests, as the members of the household entered and exited the home from the secondary, informal entrance.
To escape from road noise and take advantage of outdoor living areas in the backyard, the living room occasionally shifted to the rear of the house and patios and decks were added to merge the two living spaces.
|Windows:||There are two windows on the front of the house. One very large multi-pane light which is divided in a grid, and a small shuttered window.|
|Materials:||The house is primarily clad in stucco, except in the gable which features painted wood siding.|
