John Dinwiddie Design, Color


John Dinwiddie, of New Orleans, designed a home suitable for the South. The house is of a long rectangular style with the garage at one end. Clerestory windows provide light while maintaining privacy in the central portion, probably the sleeping area. In the living area at the right where larger windows are more suitable, a fence is used for privacy. This home would have been built on Lot 4.
