The La Salle

1939 Lewis MFG. New Liberty Homes

The La Salle is a simplified version of an extremely popular Colonial cottage that appeared in a huge number of plan books during the mid-20s. The house was side-gabled with the clipped gables. Some people call those jerkinhead or snubbed gables. The façade is strictly symmetrical although versions often show bumpouts and ells. This two-bedroom plan is a rectangle with an attached pergola. The ceiling height was a full 9 feet, which would have contributed substantially to a sense of spaciousness even considering its diminutive 936 sf footprint.
