House Plans, Home Plans, Floor Plans, Garage Plans, and Backyard Project Plans

Full Description


Nearly 100 years ago, Topeka, Kansas, homebuilder Lewis F. Garlinghouse had an idea to promote his construction business. He would arrange a display of photographs and floor plans of his bungalow designs and put them in the window of a local bank. Right away the display caught the eye of a building-and-loan executive from another town, who thought the Garlinghouse plans would be useful to builders in his town. Soon photos and floor plans were hanging in banks, thrifts, and lumberyards all around the region.

As it turned out, builders were interested in acquiring well-designed plans. But what actually jump-started L.F.’s business was the overwhelming interest his plans received from the general public. When people began asking where they could buy the blueprints, the home plan business as we know it today was born.
