Plan of proposed house at Parksville, B.C., for M.P. Beattie, Esq. Public

"Newbie Lodge", 1015 East Island Highway, Parksville, B.C.

Proposal, contract and other drawings showing plans, elevations, sections and details. A detailed item list is available. In July and August 1920 Maclure prepared proposal drawings for a two-storey house with part basement and attic (AP1961-AP1968). The final design prepared in August 1920 (AP1969 AP1979) calls for a two-storey house with part basement only. The basement includes a servant's room, lavatory, laundry, storeroom and furnace and fuel room. The ground floor comprises a vestibule with adjoining lavatory, hall, library, drawing room, dining room, breakfast room, kitchen, pantry, larder and veranda. The second floor consists of a gallery in the upper hall, four bedrooms, dressing room, linen room, bathroom and balcony. The exterior walls are covered with cedar boards and battens and shingles. Contract drawings (AP1974-AP1979) inscribed: "This is one of the plans referred to in our contract dated Sept. 10th 1920. [Signed] M. Vansittart [and] M P Beattie". Two floor plans of an unidentified house (file 206: AP2004-AP2005) bear some resemblance to AP1970-AP1971, AP1975-AP1976.

Item is an architectural drawing by Samuel Maclure prepared for M.P. Beattie of Parksville, B.C.
