1126 8th Street

This 1-1/2 story bungalow sits under a front gable roof with large, shed dormers on the east and west sides. These dormers appear to be additions to the house but match the house in both character and materials. The main gable and dormers feature open eaves and wide barge boards, and the gable has decorative knee brackets. A full width hipped porch is present on the north side of the house, supported by tapered square columns set on a solid balustrade. This balustrade, like the rest of the house, is clad with double drop siding finished with corner boards. The central entry door on the north side is a replacement of the original door. The windows in the house are primarily 1/1 double-hung wood sash, but the gable ends feature paired eight-pane casement windows. The windows typically feature wide board surrounds, but the casement windows have narrow trim molding. A brick chimney with a corbelled cap is centrally located in the house. A small garage is located just west of the house, clad with plywood with two plywood out-swinging doors.
