M. By BAVID «. BARBUTHER An ideal plan for indoor-outdoor living is featured in Design HW-23 ! for The House of The Week. Garden terraces surround this house. Broad sliding glass drors open five rooms to breo/es and sunshine. Kitchen and family room merge into a spacious informal living area, with a barhacuc fireplace in the kitchen. This arrangement sparest the hig living room and formal dining room from everyday wear and tear. A gracious entrance, foyer, three t;enrrously proportioned hedrooms, two bathrooms — one a split bath — complete this unusual layout. All this and low costs, too. ;ue made possible by expert planning, which kppp.5 this house within 1.419 square feet and saves Vl.'iOO or more by substituting a crawl space f«r a basement. However, tiii*. is a flexible plan. You ran build a basement if you prefer. The oversize garage provides ample space for a basement stairway and service vestibule be__ and the family ronm A distinctive feature of the exterior styling of this house is the open rafters above the terrace and the two sliding glass doors of the bedrooms. A variety of treatment, is suggested by this detail. You could leave these rafters open for shadow effect. You could cover them with corrugated fiber glass sheets in a pasH color. You could grow vines over the terrace. Or van could roof it over conventional- i.v for a covered porch. Herman 11. York, architect who specializes in suburban and country homes, designed HW-23 with a weather eye on the building dollar throughout. Room dimensions indicate the extent to which this house is planned for the use of standard lengths of lumber without the expense of cutting on the job. Rooi7i widths of 13 and 4 inches show the use of standard 14-foot joists with 4 inches allowed at each end for bearing and wall construction. Widths of 15 feet 4 inches show the n*e of 16-foot joists —lumber be in p. available in multiple-; (if '.'. fr-'f'l. This not on:.v saves money but rcMJis in good room si/.es. The architect, carries this prudence into ihe exterior design, too. He has pitched the roof just enough to permit the uw of economical asphalt shingles. He suggests the use of brick veneer for an accent to the front end of the garage. This could be eliminated for economy although it provides a pleasant touch with its extension of a pierced brick wall pailly screening the garage doors. Either shingles or hand-split shakes could be used to side the main from wall, depending on the building budget, and the rest of the house can be limshwi with plain clapboard siti- il)«. Numerous nureties of planning characterize this hou.^;. Closets are large—many of them planned with sbding doors.

Sliding doors also open from the foyer into the powder room section of the split bathroom as well as between the two compartments of this bathroom. A breakfast bar between the kitchen and family room is a smart provision for children's snacks as well as for informal entertaining when the family room is used for evening recreation. The kitchen is well arranged for cabinets and appliances, with space alloted for a modern raised oven separate from countertop burners. The barbecue is convenient for serving either in the dining room or family room. Between the barbecue and refrigerator are a broom closet and a pantry closet. By locating the foyer as a center hall, every room in the house becomes accessible from the front door without passage through another room—the dining room, of course, is accepted as an exception to this rule because of its periods of disuse. The most glamorous feature of this house is the way its walls of glass open to let you enjoy the best of the outdoors from lamily room, dining room, living room and the two major bedrooms—or close weathertight to give you spectacular views of any storm from the snug and cozy security of your OV.TI home. SLIDING DOORS DKFV WEATHKK SLIDING GLASS doors are one of. the most glamorous and successful of modern building accessories. T.heir sturdy aluminum frames lock as securely as modern office building and store doors. Weatherstripped as thoroughly as any window or door, they defy the worst of storms. Glazed with single sheets of heavy plate glass, or with double insulating glass, they can be as comfortable in any climate as picture windows or window walls. Standard height is 6 feet 10 inches, with width.-, of open-' ings ranging from 6 to 16 feel. Five pairs of sliding glass doors are used in the plan for HW-23 on this page. / ^v.-^ 11OW SLIDING GLASS doors open on garden terraces from five rooms.
