In 1915, the automobile was still a new concept and most people didn't own one so house plans generally didn't appear with any type of garage. Well into the 20th century the majority of houses were designed without attached garages; many plan books showed garage designs that could be used as an outbuilding instead. This plan is typical of the suburban style bungalow built on a slight rise with a garage entry at street level. It opens into the basement with stairs up to the hallway. So convenient! For a two-bedroom house, this is quite a spacious plan, but still uses the "closed" floor plan typical of earlier designs and not the open floor plan of the Craftsman bungalow.
