Historic Plans: Popular Bungalow Harris Home No. L-1005
Harris Homes were kit houses available after WWI. You could order your entire house, even the furnishings and have it delivered by train.
A new and popular Harris home because of its impressive exterior and size. It is a typical bungalow in the fullest sense of the word with wide projecting eaves and half-enclosed porch, extending across the entire front. For convenient in lay-out, economy in cost of construction and cost of material it has no equal. All modern conveniences and all on one floor, consisting of living room or parlor, dining room, kitchen and two good sized bedrooms.
The kitchen is directly off the dining room, saving the thrifty housewife a good many steps. The largest of the two chimneys as shown in the picture is in the living room specially designed for a modern fireplace and the small chimney is in the dining room corner directly adjoining the kitchen, so that the matter of stove heating is taken care of properly and very conveniently.
Another feature not usually found in bungalows of this size is a convenient stairway to the basement. The steps are located directly off the back entry, giving entrance to the cellar from both outside and inside-a real convenience. The bay window arrangement in dining room and the large window in the living room, the windows in the bedrooms and the two separate windows in the kitchen afford a flood of light over the entire house… To those requiring extra room, this can easily be arranged for by finishing off a couple of rooms in the attic.
