The House Of The Week THE LAWTON CONSTITUTION, Wednesday, August 21, 1963 9 Tidy Ranch Has Its EVERYTHING Ivom ils arresting facade to its angled imerior walls and dramatic caihcdral ceilings marks this ns one of the most creative designs evev to appear in the House ot the Week series. That's a powerful claim, but the Tact that this house contains a basic area of only 1.297 sq. ft, makes it a safe one. Architect Samuel Paul, who lias accepted the challenge of strict space limitations many limes in the past, has shown more clearly than ever in this elegant little design that small homes can be just as imaginative as large ones. Dimensions ot the house ave only 5V-1" by Ay over-all which means it will be quite comfortable on a 6j' lot. The desijjn is number J-S9 In the House of the Week scries. Among its more striking features is what architect Paul calls n carpoiTh -- a roofed area, open m one side, which can serve as a sheltered parking area or a covered addition to an entrance court. Another exciting innovation, included as an aid to creative interior decorating, is the intentionally angled walls of the living, dining and family rooms, In addition, the three bedrooms plus the living and dining rooms have sloped ceilings which conform to the sire t( each room, Best of all, these interesting innovations aren't inordinately expensive, as their sparkling differ- once might suggest. As always, Paul has kept one eye on economy throughout the design. For the exterior of the house Paul used basically only one material, venical siding, so as not to detract from the unusual shape which is the source of ils charm. The shape and location of the window's, a few flower boxes, a touch o.' plywood and some stone veneer Incing the entrance court provide colorful accents. ADDITIONAL DETAILS An important detail that might so unnoticed at first glance is thai a l l three bedrooms plus the living room, dining room and kitchen are cornei' rooms, with a resulting abundance of light and air. A nice entrance foyer serves as a visual addition to ihp living room . bui ai the same time keeps t r a f f i c out of the room and efficiently funnels it 10 any one of the three activity areas -- sleeping area, formal area and informal area, all of which a IT clearly zoned with "!v laucr two properly interrelated. A low planter adjoins Ihe linen closei at !ho foyer, and the closet also has a high planter above it. The combination forms a pleasant ; entrance to the living room. As an optional feature Paul has included ; CHARMINGLY DIFFERENT: This elegant little ranch contains seven full rooms in modest dimensions of 51'4.' by 45'. A courtyard'graces the entrance, and inside a striking comer fireplace, I h e lype ihat can be viewed from any pan of Ihe room, which helps to define the dining room boundary. An optionni. barbecue uses i h e same chimney on the patio outside. The kilchen has a double bowl corner sink and a r.ew type cooking ensemble which features a double oven at eye level over an extra wide range top. A breakfast bar, which has a. step-saving lifr-lop, divides the kilchen and family room. In addition 10 ihe bar there is plenty of room for a table in the kitchen. A lavaiory is well located near Ihe service entrance and ihe kitchen. The main bath is convenient to Iht 1 formal area as well as the bedrooms. There are two major optional feadnv's.
