    Looks like another Radford design. Check out Oklahoma Houses by Mail’s post showing the plan and similar homes.

      Everyne should watch that film! Does HGTV in the US carry that house moving show? I’ve never seen it. It was really interesting. I cannot fathom how they moved houses before all the big engines and things we have today, let alone how on earth did they raise a house up, then set i down?! The only thing I’d add, is….SHIRTS!!!! Those guys REALLY need to cover up. Like me, wearing a bikini, there are some of us who look better clothed…LOL!!!

        Karen, the house in the Massive Moves episode is mine! Various cable channels have run that series, including DIY and GAC. I don’t know if the show is still in production, but I’m pretty sure they still run episodes, because, as recently as a few months ago, someone commented on my FB page that they had just seen my house and me on TV. I love your comment about the guys needing shirts! It WAS a hot summer that year, but still!

      Kelly, is it me or can we no longer save to favorites? I haven’t seen the “bar” for a few days now.

    Taylorville must have been a prosperous community around the turn of the last century and fertile marketing ground for plan book architects. After conducting an impromptu streetview tour, I quickly found what I believe are two J.H. Daverman (Grand Rapids, MI) designs: https://goo.gl/maps/a6SphBKQtRG2 and https://goo.gl/maps/v1TpESEVmmy A more methodical search could likely turn up more examples from published house plans.
    The fine Classical Revival millwork presented in this particular house was a pleasant surprise. Anyone have an idea about the doorway in photo No. 10 from the bottom? It looks like it was almost never used. Perhaps the doors go out to a balcony porch upstairs.

    William A. Radford was a prolific Chicago based architect with several plan books from the early 1900’s that were very popular. (original plan book copies can be found and accessed from Online sources like the Internet Archive and Google Books) This example seems to be fairly intact and original based on the photos. Taylorville is located in central Illinois not far from the larger cities of Decatur and Springfield.
