My house is located in San Diego and was built in 1940. It's single story with no dormers and sided with stucco. The roof is "hipped". The interior is lath and plaster, kind of a "fancy" plaster job; not just smooth..kind of like a topographical map look. The doorways are arched and there are built in shelves which are arched as well. There are pocket doors between the kitchen and dining room and the living room and hallway where the bedrooms are located. The original house shape appears to have been a "U" shape.

I'd like to know the style of the house is. Also I'm currently having the house completely re-wired and would like to install authentic light switches and light fixtures...I just don't know what they are! Any help would be MUCH appreciated!

Sounds like Spanish Colonial Revival Bungalow which was popular in California from the 1920' to the 1940's. I'm sure that the San Diego public library has several books on this particular house.
