1954 - The Henry C. Riggs House, 3224 Lewis Farm Road, Raleigh. Riggs bought the plans from Popular Mechanics for $15 and began construction in 1952. According to his daughter, "the prototype was of frame construction but he decided to build of concrete block (possibly because of reduced finishing costs) and steel-framed casement windows. This change of materials necessitated slight revisions to the plans; he also added a three-quarter bath and eliminated the breezeway. Although he worked full-time and frequently was out of town on business, he acted as the general contractor and did much of the work himself. While buying materials, we met another couple building a block house and we would visit each others' project and compare notes. We moved into our house as soon as the roof was on and the electrical, heating, and plumbing operational. For months my bed sat atop a big pile of plywood. By the end of 1954 father was purchasing wallpaper and drapery rods indicating that construction was basically complete. The exterior was left unpainted until it was time to sell; interior block walls were painted (using the vacuum cleaner) while interior partitions were traditional stud and drywall. The house sat on a concrete slab with radiant heat; a well provided water. The yard was left in its natural wooded state except for a small strip of lawn across the front."
