A set of drawings for the Freeman Ford House were donated to Columbia University, Avery Architectural and Fine Arts Library, New York, NY. These drawings included: "...8 blueprints with crayon markings on paper, 3 ink drawings with pencil markings on cloth, 2 blueprints on paper, 2 pencil drawings on paper, 1 blueprint with pencil markings on paper, 1 crayon drawing with pencil on paper, and 1 ink drawing on cloth with pencil markings and also with ink wash applied to the verso." (See Greene and Greene Architectural Records and Paper Collections, Series II: Project Drawings, "Freeman A. Ford House Residence for Freeman A. Ford, Esq., at Pasadena, Cal. : [with] garage / Greene & Greene, architects,"Accessed 09/01/2011.)

This house had had a Spanish tile roof put on it by 1948, an alteration that Jean Murray Bangs stated "unhappily disfigured" it. (See Jean Murray Bangs, "Greene and Greene," Architectural Forum, 89:4, 10/1948, p. 85.)
