July 13,1975 $MiubyC«**to.Jf«iJ CMrifet*. XKM Yvafea Master Bedroom Arrangement Makes Week's House Unique ByArty la»g TAe /iuocioiej Prew This two-story design is innovative in its concept, with two bedrooms on the first floor and the main bedroom upstairs. The separation of bedrooms gives the owners complete privacy, creating on their upper floor a kind of suite. It has three closets, one a walk-in, a dressing table and split bathroom, and a "library balcony" nook overlooking the entrance foyer below. » * · THE MAIN floor is planned by architects Herman York and Raymond Schenke with the conventional living, dining, kitchen relationship, including a pass-through as a serving shelf to the rear private terrace. A recessed entrance door insures protection at the entry from bad weather. The foyer, with its open rail stair leading to the balcony above, is large by any standards. From the foyer direct access is available to the living room, upstairs, kitchen, bedrooms and garage. The stair to the basement is nearby, directly next to the foyer to kitchen door. * * * A CHANGE in floor level gives definition to the bedroom wing. The two bedrooms 1 on this main floor are completely private, with a split bathroom directly across the hall. The location of this bathing facility eliminates the need for an additional lavatory-toilet, thus saving money in total construction. A laundry, adjacent to the bathroom plumbing, is convenient to the main floor bedrooms and to the garage. A two-car garage can be planned without changing the exterior appearance to any substantial degree. :The exterior of Design R-124 looks exactly like what it is meant to be: a two-story house with a one-story wing, tied together in a simple roof framing system, more house than quickly meets the eye. -The two-story portion appears like one story at the front. However, much extra upstairs space is obtained by a roof which is raised at the back in what becomes a__ Dutch dormer extending almost across the entire rear. * '* * THE ROOF lines will insure adequate SAVE SUPPLY COMPANY Where Quality Home Needs Have Cost Less for f he past 46 /ears ventilation above the upper ceilings due to the large volume of space near the topmost ridge. There are clear ceilings throughout the upstairs, a condition unusual in houses with this kind of roof configuration. Exterior walls are of cedar shingles with some brick at the living room front wall. These shingles may be either of a sawn variety or a light hand-split. The color of stain used can be determined by individual selection, here restraint is advisable; Elegance is achieved, even in a modest-sized house, by using few colors. All white trim, doors, cupola, shutters, etc, will contrast well with a dark stain on the cedar shingle. Design R-124 has a living room, dining room, kitchen, two bedrooms, a split bath, a laundry room and a foyer on the first floor, totaling 1027 square feet. On the second floor is a bedroom with a second split bath, totaling 439 square feet. The over-all dimensions of 50' 4" by 32'4" include a one-car garage.

Under the terms of the deal, a certain amount of work was left to me. One of the things I have to do is to enclose the unheated crawl space under the house. I know there should be some kind of opening to permit air to move in and out. How much? A. -- There should be at least two vents opposite each other, but this is the absolute minimum. It's better to put in four vents, one on each of the four sides. If you want to do a really good job, put a moisture seal on the ground. This can be polyethylene sheeting (4 mil or thicker).or asphalt roll roofing (55-pound type). Q. -- I plan to use shellac on a number of projects soon. I know it dries very quickly. How long do I have to wait between coats? A. - While .shellac dries to the touch very quickly, if takes several hours to set. so wait at least that long before applying a second coat. Even better, let it stand overnight. Q. -- We have prefinished hardboard in our basement playroom. There are crayon marks on one of the walls. I'm afraid to try to get them off for fear of making them worse. Can you help me? A. -- It shouldn't be much of a problem. First, wipe with a soft, dry cloth. This will remove any of the excess crayon. Then clean with one of the household cleaning agents. Because the prefinishiBg is done at the factory, the coating will be durable enough to withstand rubbing with the clean- : 5ag ageat, ' Q.-We have a smooth vinyl fabric wall covering in one of wr rooms.

I am always hearing about choosing a reliable contractor. How do I find one? A. -- Consult friends and neighbors who may have had some work done. Or ask your gas or electric company for suggestions. If all efforts to obtain a recommendation fail, then select two or three from your phone book. Check with your Better Business Bureau. Some banks will advise you as to credit ratings. Give all the contractors the same outline of the job and ask for estimates. When you decide on one - and before yon sign anything - ask him for references, including other home own- Cincinnati Graduates Five Area Students CINCINNATI-Five " Charleston area students were among last month's graduates of the University of Cincinnati. They were Gc"-y Davis. Powers Persinger. Terry Drake and Carl Steinberg, all of Charleston; and Rosemary Speer of Elkview. ers for whom he has done work. Check them out. If he stalls or won't give such references, forget him. Also, ask him about the insurance he carries. Does he have insurance to protect his men if they are injured on the job? Are you covered if one of bis men damages your house, for example by stepping through a ceiling?
