This Craftsman-style plan is unique for its Asian/Swiss Chalet aesthetic. The wide eaves and low roof pitch recall the Swiss Chalet bungalow form that some of the Prairie School designers favored. The exterior was finished with fir siding "rough side out" and wood fiber plaster. Inside the wood detail was Douglas fir. To us it looks both modern and vintage. Inside the plan is a bit more formal, opening into a reception hall with a dining room on one side and the livingroom, graced with a box-beam ceiling, on the other. In 1908, one could plan on plunking down $2400 exclusive of land to built this little beauty in Seattle.
