Tippet’s Hill Cemetery
jolamar’s house plans are named for presidents: the washington (one of the larger house models, a 5-window colonial), the jefferson, the madison and the adams.
the builder maximised interior space using 2×3″ studs instead of 2x4s for partition walls…not sure if exterior walls were also 2x3s. there is a split-entry model and a cape cod/bungalow style as well as the 2 colonials.
there are 4 different houseplans: the blair, the glendon, the fleming and the aberdeeen, but every house was unique in some way.
the blair has a bedroom above & family room behind the garage…the bedroom is notorious for poor a/c…and early flemings has a smaller family room between kitchen & garage, subsequently enlarged. the aberdeen is a split-entry.
early glendons’ family rooms, between the main part of the house & garage, are on a slab, but in the same model further around the circle it’s over a crawlspace. switches are on different sides of doorways & rooms. plumbing…don’t get me started;-} suffice it to say that almost ever gordon home has had the street supply line replaced, and remember that issue with pinhole leaks in copper piping? yup, been there, replaced that;-}
