Blue Ribbon Homes by American Builder Magazine

This small cottage plan is the first of a popular series of plans called "Blue Ribbon Homes" and published in August 1921 by the William A. Radford Publishing Company for American Builder Magazine. Though small it has about 1100 square feet. Most of us now wouldn't care for the bedroom opening directly off the living room, but it was a common practice to minimize hall space in the 1910s and 20s. Possibly its most interesting feature is the large single-pane window in the living room. A book called Radford's Blue Ribbon Homes collected 155 of these plans and was offered in 1924.
