Shelves and drawers hold dozens of articles of clothing. When closed, doors blend into painted walls. The house is built of brick, rjii a U plan. Large windows face the rear to avoid Ash-bowl living. The overhanging roof adtnlls low winter rays of sunlight, but blocks high, hot rays of summer. There is no basement. Service rooms .on ground level benefit from full 1 light and ventilation, and avoid the danger of leaks tion. Attic storage Is dry and as accessible as a basement.
