A couple of weeks ago I featured a set of 1950s ranch house blue prints. I have four sets of vintage 1950s blueprints, and today I would like to share the second set. These plans were designed by the architect Herman H. York, and feature a 2 bedroom, one bath home. Not a large house, not tiny, just an average 1950s American home. I tried to do a little research on the architect. I was able to locate an obituary from 1999, which I believe to be his. You can view the obituary here.
Like the first set of plans that I posted, this house has also been built in town. The first picture shows the house. This is actually the house where the auction was at that I purchased the four sets of plans. At the time of the auction the house was much more attractive, in my opinion. It had a gray roof and the horizontal siding was all painted gray. The vertical siding was white, and it still had it's original garage door. It has sold a time or two since the auction where the original owner sold it, and by the looks of it, the new owners might not be giving it as much love as the elderly lady that lived there before.
