The plans for this Bay St. Louis, Mississippi craftsman bungalow are in the Edward F. Sporl Office Records collection at Tulane University’s South Eastern Architectural Archives. The plans were featured in the just past bungalow exhibit. Here is what information was provided along with the plans.
Edward F. Sporl. Raised Basement Shingle and Cobblestone Bungalow. [AKA Edwards Residence, McDonald Residence], 119 Washington Street. Bay St. Louis, MS. Undated. Edward F. Sporl Office Records. Edward Sporl designed this raised basement bungalow for clients in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi. Its primary floor is raised 6’6” above the foundation base. Constructed circa 1909, the residence predates the earliest Carrollton neighborhood “raised basement bungalows.”
As the second story of the house that is visible in the photographs above does not appear on the plan, it makes me curious if this house might exist some where in New Orleans without a second story ? Or it’s possible the secord story was simply omitted for clarity.
