Roofing lines are distinctive on this low cost home. A flat roof coders carport and entry area, with the roof proper-is a low pitched gable. BUILD IT Low Budget House Looks Like A Million By HIAWATHA ESTES Many prospective home builders', believe that their budget limitations automatically prevent them from .enjoying A* better features of contemporary architectural planning. This is certainly not. true with reference to this particular design due to the efficient use of today's, new building materials and methods and planning techniques. Since the house plan is almost a perfect rectangle, a simple low pitched gable roof has been used to cover this design. Gravel rock, which is much less expensive than wood roofing and which will lower yoor fire insurance rate, has been used as roofing material. A flat roof has been placed over the carport (if preferred, a door, can be added) and the' front entry. , . Note the center-hall design which means that traffic will flaw easily in, and out of the house. Also, that all rooms are extremely large of a home of only 1,845 square feet. The master bedroom is separated from the living room with a 13-foot wardrobe. This room has direct access to -its own bath. A door could be located between this bam and the 12xJ2 bedroom and a door could also be located between the 10x13 bedroom and the family bath. Another half bath is located off the service. An oversized eating area has been included in the design of the kitchen, together with a pantry and the latest built-in, work saving appliances. The kitchen is open to the family room which provides an ideal guest-host arrangement where a Sunday-chef, salad-tosser and drink-mixer can perform. This is especially true due to the addition of a spacious dining ell as part of the family room. Sliding glass doors lead from both tit« family »nd livii^ rooms to the patio where outdoor living can be enjoyed to the utmost.
