Notes
Survey number HABS ID-42
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-40).
Building/structure dates: 1921 initial construction
Structure has been referred to stylistically as "Oriental Bungalow."

Significance: This local house was built by Victor Sheldrew, a local carpenter, as his own residence. It is a distinctive rendition of the bungalow form, a general style which Sheldrew used in constructing other local houses. / The Victor Sheldrew house was begun in the late spring of 1921 and was occupied by the end of that year. Sheldrew was a local carpenter who built a number of houses besides his own in Montour. Among them were the George Adams house (1915), the Cox house (1917), the Amos and Volkmer houses (1919), and the Brown house (1920). He also worked on the Valley County Courthouse in Cascade (1920). Given even this limited list, it is clear that Sheldrew was quite familiar with the Craftsman Bungalow form. His choice for his own residence was within this architectural idiom, but in form and material was quite unlike the prevailing style of domestic architecture to be found in Montour. Both the roof form and plan appear, though not in combination, in books such as "Bungalowcraft" (1914), "Bungalows" (1926), and "Bungalows and Modern Homes" (1928).
