There are several reasons No. 580 appeals to us, even though the position of the kitchen chimney is oddly placed relative to the range, which most likely would have been a woodstove in 1918. It's a simplified Craftsman-style bungalow, a basic rectangle so it would be relatively easy to build, with two bedrooms and a bathroom, and reasonable size living rooms. As small houses go, it even has a respectable amount of closet space without counting the basement storage. And it's easily reconfigurable for a more modern lifestyle.
