Henry Wilson Number 167 in Nova Scotia

Creative Commons License

A few months ago I received an email asking for help from someone who was researching her home. She thought it might be a kit home but couldn’t find anything that would match. I was told the house was in Nova Scotia. That didn’t rule out a kit home but the first thing that came to my mind was a pattern home. I told her to email me a few photos and I would take a look. I immediately recognized the house! The Nova Scotia bungalow is a good candidate for a Henry Wilson number 167.

This is from my 1907 Henry L Wilson catalog. I think this may be the earliest publication for Henry L Wilson designs. It's the earliest I've seen anyway. The bungalow in Nova Scotia was built reversed, an option offered to homeowners.

I couldn't help her as far as who built this house or who lived here but I'm pretty sure that this bungalow was built with the plan that Henry L Wilson designed in 1907. It's a good candidate anyway. Wilson's plans were sold throughout the US and Canada. Photo copyright Debra Brose
