The Hardy Home

Reader Kirby R. sent a very nice note to me and with it came his vision for how the Hardy home must have been laid out based on the various descriptions in the books. His architectural diagram was so professional looking, and so closely matched how I envisioned the home to look, I asked for his permission to post his drawing here. So here it is for us all to enjoy.

First a drawing of the exterior.  Remember, the Hardys lived in a large house in a nice neighborhood of Long Island, New York:

Then we have the architectural diagram of the ground floor as well as the grounds outside:

Some fine meals were cooked by Aunt Gertrude in that country kitchen

Finally we have the diagram of the upstairs as well as the basement:

Thank you very much, Kirby, for contributing this to the site. It helps us all picture the events of the book that much better.
