Description

The Welborn Phillips Company was a developer of tract homes. Smith and Williams created a brochure which illustrated their philosophy on tract housing. They highlighted such details as exterior masonry planter boxes to give a pleasant view from inside the house, sound insulation between bedrooms and main living areas, a breakfast bar along one side of the kitchen for flexible seating, and integrated car shelters.
