    My Review:

    This book was a fascinating look at the smaller houses of the nineteen twenties. The houses that were provided looked very compact and perfectly laid out. I love that time period of time anyway, so this was a nice way to appreciate the houses that were built fulfilling the American dream.

    I was provided this book in exchange for an honest review from NetGalley. This was a fun look back into the history of a time when people were starting to grow into social beings in neighborhoods instead of rambling farms and rustic areas.

    These houses were unique with their single bathrooms multiple bedrooms and one new addition, the dining room. A free standing room standard into these houses securing the family would remain together at dinner time securing the family dynamic.

    Blueprints showing these new homes that encompassed the dream of families moving away from the ranches, large family dwellings and moved small families into the new modern houses of the nineteen twenties. I suppose due to age, the photos were grainy and not as clear as I would have hoped.

      1. So appreciate your work with these seniors! What a rewarding situation to find yourself in! ❤ I grew up in a turn of the last century neighborhood and believe me I recognized the character of these homes in my own memory.
