The commission number for this project is 0161. J. M. Ferris first appears living at this address in city directories in 1897, while the Mills and Wachter firm existed from 1893 to 1897. Most likely most of these drawings were created in 1895 or 1896. The drawings include two sets of plans, one initial proposed set of drawings in sheets 13 - 20, and the plans by which the house was constructed in sheets 1 - 12. The drawings include floorplans for the cellar, first floor, second floor and attic, exterior elevations for all four sides of the building, a site plan, a roof plan, and some interior detail drawings.
