Students of home building report pre-war, i there is an increased trend toward to build making the garage an Integral part of the house design. This may be done in one of several ways. The simplest method is to build an attached gnragc. It is economical because one wall serves for both the garage and the house. It is connected directly to the house by a' door, so 11 is not necessary to go outside when using the 1 ,car. •'•-..-.' In' a two-story house the garage may bo directly under a bedroom wing. In this construction it is Im- l>nr(nnt that the garage ceilings be Insulated, which may be done by plastering over insulating board Inlh. Finishing both walls and ceiling in this- way will provide extra protection for the car, regardless of where the garage is located. A scmi-dctiiched garage is onc that is connected to the house by a breewiway. Properly planned, this construction will tie house and garage together so that even a small house will look large and substantial. The garage should Ire nt least ten feel wide and nineteen feet deep. The larger it is the more space will be available for storing bicycles, garden tools and the 'like.
