It is intcndci to be a iL-mporary homo but a permanent building, suitable now as a comfortable liouse for a small family and convertible later into a guest house, two-car garage, or combination garage, workshop and recreation room. Because of its rectangular design, there is no waste space, permitting the inclusion of a built-in garage as well as two bedrooms, living room with dining alcove. kitchen, and bath. Cost is kept low by simplicity of planning and the use throughout of standard size windows and doors. The durable asphalt-shingled roof is economical anil fire-retardant, yet colorful ami attractive. This house might be built on the back part of a lot and used as the fanujy home until restrictions on building have becAi lifted, materials arc more plentiful, and the family budget is ample for a larger house lo be constructed on the front of the lot. The smaller house could then be put lo its secondary use.
