Glen Flora Plan

0149.0002: Glen Flora Plan

This illustration of the "Glen Flora" plan is taken from a 1909 book of house plans and basic carpentry. It was used as the inspiration for the building of the exceptional Tower House (aka Parkin Manor) in Cranbrook, BC. The illustration shows the house as a wooden structure, although the final building was of brick imported from Sandpoint, Idaho. The porch was also streamlined and constructed in a more simple, classical fashion.
