The Seattle Daily Times described the Orlo B. Kellogg House in its issue of 11/19/1904: " E.W. Houghton is the architect of this tasteful home, which is now under course of construction in the Denny-Blaine, Lake Park near the station. The owner is O.B. Kellogg. It is a one-and-a-half-story home, the basement being shingled and the upper part rough cast plaster and half timber work. The house will contain seven rooms and bath and will cost $4,000." (See "Realty and Building," Seattle Daily Times, 11/19/1904, p. 3.) The residence had an inset porch on the first floor with a balcony above it. The balcony had a carved balustrade. With its broad gable roof, half-timbering and second floor balcony, the residence resembled a Swiss chalet, a building type popular during the Arts and Crafts Era. Kellogg worked with his father, Martin, in the firm M.V. Kellogg and Son, General Contractors, in Seattle,

Contractor's own home.
