Schmitz Park

The design is influenced by the Craftsman tradition and Scandinavian forms. Striking exterior features include heavy timber brackets supporting four-foot wide overhangs at the gable ends and porch roofs and a timber band that runs around the house at the sill level of the upper floor windows. This band and the use of board and batt siding over cedar shingles were used to reduce the scale of the building, creating continuity at the garage entrance and a homey and welcoming feeling in the entry courtyard.
