When you begin to look about for a plan suitable for such a house, it is a good idea to keep in mind always that in time you may want to make additions" to the original layout, and to choose a design which makes eventual enlargement possible with the least expenditure of time and money. Such a design is shown in the , sketch above, a .home modern I and correct for two. This is real- i bathroom of dressing room size, and large window lighted and ventilated bed closet which contains a disappearing bed. tater you will want to add a full sized bedroom, and increase the size of the porch. This can be economically managed because of the square plan of the house and the placement of the present living room windows one of which will become the bedroom door without spoiling the appearance of the lis'ine room. . recent study of comparative nlan u-itl, «,..",,,, 1 C ° Sl ?
