The Franklin

A new style of home, never before built by Ritz-Craft



by Myles Biggs

This House of the Month is an innovative and never before offered design! In total, this plan offers a possible 2,873 square feet of living space with three bedrooms and two and one half bathrooms.

The exterior style is known in architectural terms as a through-cornice-dormer two story. The elevation includes a finished second floor front module with a short knee wall to provide flush front dormers that bisect the front eave. The second story integral dormers arrive fully finished with pre-fabricated roof caps to be installed after raising the second floor hinged roof sections.

This styling, which replicates a classic design seen in many New England and traditional Southern markets, can also be adapted to other balanced-front two story plans.

Can plans be modified? What is estimated cost of your homes with dormers?
