Although its been updated with an exterior of cultured stone, this Wilmore Kentucky Ardmore looks much like it did in the 1930 catalog.
"Wherever it is built, our Aurora home gains a host of admirers. The simplicity and dignity of the lines, combined with the air of hospitality given by the broad eaves and recessed porch, make it a universal favorite. The exterior is sided with cypress siding up to the belt course. From here to the wide, enclosed cornice, clear red cedar shingles are used. The heavy square columns and high piers give a solid, substantial effect which sets off the beauty of the whole house."

This Wardway Carlyle in Angola, Indiana is a perfect match to the illustration in the 1928 catalog.
"It is hard to believe that all the space shown on the floor plan can be packed into this charming little home, yet when you enter the completed home you will realize it has been done. The exterior is all that good taste and good architecture can desire. Especially attractive is the porch with its heavy timbered constructions and massive brackets. This “craftsman” note is carefully carried out in the open rafter ends of the cornice. "

This Wardway Girard, built on a hill above the riverfront in Duquene, Pennsylvania was used as a customer testimonial in the 1929 catalog.
"Such details as the uneven roof design, wide cornice with returns, the raised roof over the two front windows, the perk little hood over the front entrance with its cornice continued across the front of the house and joining the porch - these things and the setting of the house low on the foundation - have made a distinctive and unusual home of the Girard."

A brick Mount Vernon in Roanoke, Virginia compared to the 1930 catalog illustration.
"Simple dignity - charm - and an air of refinement! Few houses create so aristocratic an impression as those of the Colonial style. And they are homelike, too - more truly home to the American than any other style house can be possibly be, because they are closely associated with the traditions of the forefathers of this country. Perhaps that is why our Mount Vernon home has been one of the most popular houses pictured in this book. Its beautiful Colonial design has stood the test of time, and it is absolutely certain never to go out of style. The graceful architectural details are authentic, faithfully copied from fine old models."
