This guy is pretty Beadle-sharp...
He will respond shortly I imagine.

Congrats on the Beadle home by the way!

here is an original brochure:

Since they were low cost "tract homes" ($12,000-$18,000) there are probable no records in existance.
Phoenix was not very good at keeping records back then. I suspect if you could find an original owner who
was a bit of a "pac rat" they possible would have the plans. But you will find the most information abour
Al Beadle and his work here:
and more information on Paridise Gardens here:

Yes, congratulations on your new place in PG. If you love living there even half as much as I did, you will be very happy.

I have to agree with everything Circa said, but I can't say that I have too much information on the old archive. Just images really. I like to keep it uncluttered and just let Beadle's designs speak for themselves.

Now that I think about it, ShawnS is the only person I have spoken to who has spent some time going through the archives at ASU. I have been meaning to, but just haven't yet. I seem to vaguely remember him mentioning that some of the plans from PG were there, but I could be mistaken. I will have to ask him.

I do know someone who worked on Paradise Gardens with Al Beadle, and the next time I talk to him I will run it past him.

I guess everyone who is interested in Beadle's work deserves a trip to the ASU architecture library anyway, including me.

I did not see anything regarding Paradise Gardens, other than what I saw in "Constructions" but there are some beautiful plans of some of Al's homes he designed. You get chills while you are flipping through the plans. The plans are HUGE, you just want to roll them up and jet! Talk to the dude at the desk, he knows his stuff.
