The Architecture of Memorial Bend

William N. Floyd or William R. Jenkins
Year Built:1958
Original Owner:Fred K. Bradley
Notable Past Residents:N/A
Comments:This is one of a handful of butterfly roof homes in Memorial Bend but is perhaps one of the more memorable homes in the neighborhood.
Architectural Comments:Floyd utilized a broad butterfly roof to provide the home with a memorable appearance. The beams in the post and beam construction extend generously to provide a wide overhang for the home's entry. The builder took extra care to build the eaves on the corner and the side of the home around two of the trees on the lot.
