S A R A G C Mlh , t_j TrlwuD m I I Biai^r) i,_ _.bos;mtn) FAMILY ROOM · _J~1 al7l-"^T DQr--) »-S-'5--6- H Heavy lines show original construction in expansible home. Expansion possibilities add a bedroom at rear and porch breezeway, fourth bedroom or shop and garage, lert. out as a two-bedroom bungalow. Three expansion stages later it is a gracious four- bedroom ranch with 2 l /2 baths, luxurious rear porch and attached garage. The architect's pre-planning insures that the additions can be made at minimum cost, without disturbing the main living pattern. THE BASIC HOUSE has 1,314 square feet of living area. Because of its simple rectangular shape and open planning construction is economical. In the first stage of expansion, a third bedroom and private bath are added at the rear to make the total 1,554 square feet. When the mudroom and fourth bedroom are added to the left of the kitchen under the latter stages of the second expansion, total living area becomes 1,797 square feet. The garage is a final addition. Thus design ingenuity allows for many different circumstances of family size and budget limitations. Of course, if budget is not a consideration, the e n t i r e house could be built at the outset. THE PLANNED addition at the left side also offers several possibilities, depending on funds available. It could first be a porch, then a garage could be added, and finally the porch could be finished as a fourth bedroom or shop, with bathroom, mud- room and laundry facilities. A large, attractive foyer allows effortless, trouble-free circulation in the original section of the house. The liv- and and dining rooms combine to form a spacious open area more than 32 feet long. The kitchen and family room make up another dramatically spacious area -- 23 feet 4 inches in total length. Two big fireplaces -- one serving the living room the other the family room--help to separate the two main areas. LENGTH and a low roof pitch give B-52 a modern ground-hugging look. Lattice work, shutters and wood columns add a distinctive colonial atmosphere. The plan for the garage addition includes a storage room and closet, providing generously for outdoor work and play equipment. There is direct access to the garage and storage area from the covered rear porch for added convenience.
