MASSACHUSETTS, TRANSCRIPT SATURDAY AFTERNOON, JULY 13, 1963 GOING UP IN STAMFORD — Country living will b. in store for Mr. and Mrs. William C. Pr«v«y when their three bedroom home on The Lane in Stamford ii completed. Under construction by Clayton Slade of Stamford, th« structure will have two bathrooms, forced hot wafer baseboard heating, and fireplaces in the living room end « basement game room. A two-car garage, not yet constructed, will be attached to the house. Mr. Prevey is a member of the Drury High School faculty. Indoor-Outdoor Theme Is Good In Entrance Hall Decorating an entrance hall cai sometimes be a ticklish prob lem. So often "decorating" ere ales a sliff, unyielding effec when the idea was to imbue thi area with warm cordiality, Anc frequently, attempts to be casua end in a closet-like look. Many families have had won derful results using an indoor outdoor theme for the foyer They've found this creates good transition from yard t house, and an informality whic! is at once hospitable and warm The indoor-outdoor theme is an easy one to work out. It couli (begin with the simple repetition | of the house exterior siding a 1 wall paneling for the entryway Any of the siding patterns can be used. For example, resawn western red cedar in popular tongue-and groove pattern would be striking as paneling for interior walls. Ii fact, resawn cedar siding ofter appears on the walls of sophist! cated living rooms. Bevel, drop board-and-balten, or channel ce dar siding would work equally well, whether rough or smooth surfaced. It's a good nils of thumb to select the same finish for the foyer walls as is used for the siding. A possible exception would be the repetition of a distinctive color which doesn't jibe with the home's interior coloi scheme. In that case, the siding can still be used for entry walls but with a natural wood stain, or a clear or weathered finish. To consolidate the wedding ol indoors and outdoors, wide areas of glass may be used lo show off the conlinuation of siding from outside in. This can be accomplished without destroying the privacy of the foyer if the glass is installed as a clerestory above the front door and adjoining cloak closet. Other ways to complete the indoor-outdoor Ihcmc would include the use of slate or brick for the foyer floor, an indoor garden arranged either m a planter box or as a "bed" at floor level. If you choose interesting ighting fixtures for the front walk, perhaps coachmen's lanterns, these, too, could bs repeated indoors. Gr. Barrington Woman Buys N.

Plan HA189M, Carport Can Be Year-Round Play Spof for Children You can convert the carper into a year-sround playshed fo [he children without losing i original purpose as a rocf fo the modern family car. By adding storage units to tw sides, plus the side of the horn as a third wall, you get a fair] cozy three-walled play roon The storage unils should be floo to roof height or at least seve feet tall to break the force o winds. You can get some other bom features from the storage unit: which will give you extra spac for fishing, hunting, golfing an other play gear. The storag units need not be very deep make good storage space, proba aly not over two feet, You can lock those doors wher valuable hunting or golf e ment is stored. These storag units can be designed of Doug] r ir or western red! cedar so tha they will match the siding of th rest of the home, and they ca lined to malce them fros proof. If you make It easy for th children to put away skates, tn cycles and bicycles or other pla ;ear, then everybody in the fam ly can use the carport withou nlerfering with the other fellow It is well to have a few simpl rules, such as to charge every person with the responsibility fo >icking up and putting away hi equipment when he is throug using it.
