Can you help with a floorplans?

I got an email from Amanda Bennett from LAIKA Entertainment in Portland Oregon and she is searching for floorplans of suburban homes on the East Coast during the 50s and 60s.

Any ideas? Post here or email me if you have any thoughts for her!

So, starting next Monday we will  have an in depth analysis of the interiors on Mad Men – Do you have a Mad Men inspired (or just happened to exist) room? Does your home or office look
