ISC -Mav 30, 1976 A-frame Variation Interesting House By Aidy L*if 77i* JiKH-uiifd Prtu Here is a very interesting A-frame variation, with symmetrical wings on each side supported by sturdy piers, creating ample storage space under the bouse for cars, boats, trailers, etc. Under most circumstances, there will be a minimal amount of earth disturbance during the construction.

The dining room is adjacent to the kitchen, with sliding glass doors to a huge deck area. · · · THE SPACIOUS living room features a two-story height over most of its space, with applied beams on the ceiling and the exterior wall done mostly in glass through, the double height. There is a fireplace in the living room with sliding glass doors offering ready access to the deck. The deck area, besides being reachable from the living, dining areas and one of the bedrooms, has two outside stairs directly to the sideyards. There are two bedrooms on this level, each featuring outstanding closet facilities. One bedroom has sliding glass doors to the deck.

The lower level is continued in a simple rectangle with two sets of sliding glass doors opening to the back of the house. Utility and laundry rooms--the latter with a walk-in-closet-are included in this level, as are a large recreation room with fireplace and a lavatory. Outside, there are three areas sheltered by the deck that wraps around the living level above.
