There are dozens of Pierson built houses much like this one; however, each individual seems to have its own set of variations that makes it unique.   This one is an especially striking example.  As far as I know, this one is unique in having fixed front windows that match the roof pitch angle, making for a rakish look. Being fixed glass, they have the simplest possible frames and lack any cluttering detail whatsoever.   Most homes like this one have rectangular operable windows that look similar, but less striking.    

The color scheme also adds to the special character of this home.  Blue and yellow can be a tough combination to pull off without looking like a Sunoco gas station, but these particular colors provide a great vintage look on this house. The owner recalls that the original color scheme was gray with yellow trim, which also must have been quite attractive and stylish for the era.  

A  The windows were recently replaced.  The owner maintained the original fixed glass design mostly to avoid complex rework of window openings and carpentry work.

The open carport is a prominent feature of the front. So many homes of this era, even fairly deluxe homes, have open carports leaving the homeowner with a serious lack of space for hiding typical garage stuff from public view.   There was an architectural trend in the post war years to display the family car as an icon of modern prosperity and consumerism, but probably an equally important consideration was simple construction and low cost.

B  As with many Pierson homes similar to this, the main entry way is on the side.  The sidewalk leads to the front entry which is masked by the low fence.   Very different from today's trend to make the entry  gracious and inviting. 

C  This water color was painted by Ernest Pierson himself, which I acquired at the Pierson estate sale in mid 2003.  While not great art, the mere fact that he painted it suggests the sense of pride he had in this particular model.

D Here's another item picked up at the Pierson estate sale. No one I have talked to so far knows why these bronze plaques were made or what they were used for.  My guess is that they were attached to model homes.  In any case, they use the logo which appeared on Pierson literature in the 1950's and 1960's.
