Two-Bedroom Houses Gaining Popularity on Homes Market By Andy Lang The Atiociated Pret* More and more two-bedroom houses are making their appearance on the housing market. They range in size from 1000 square feet of living space to about 1600. To design a house of this size requires a bit of architectural ingenuity. Obviously, corners must be cut somewhere and maximum use " must be made of every available inch of space. The big problem is where and how to condense the habitable area so that a small family's needs can be adequately met. REALTORS TELL us that, while some 5 « - 0 families insist on large kitchens, there is an increasing willingness to accept smaller food preparation centers so that other living areas of the houses can be larger. For those who feel this way, this latest House of the Week fills the bill. By designing a pullman-type kitchen, yet leaving sufficient space for an adjoining dinette, architect William Chirgotis has produced an appealing small house--1079 square feet--with plenty of room for good living. It has an attractive exterior that leans toward the contemporary yet has enough traditional features to make it suitable for any location. Low pitch sweeping roof lines are combined with the ribbon windows, and the ov- erhanging arbor that extends past part of the front of the house to the planting box makes this design something special. The long expanse of the living room-den area (28'long). due to the location of the door and the oversized awning-type windows, allows the rear paved patio to become part of the house. The area designated as the den can be either a formal dining room or a family room. The unusual location of the living room corner brick fireplace reduces construction costs by-making use of the same chimney for the heating unit. A FULL COMPLEMENT of countertop, hanging cabinets, built-in range, oven, dishwasher, and refirgerator are efficiently arranged on both walls of the compact kitchen. The bedroom wing is isolated from the center of activity. Each of the two bedrooms has cross ventilation by means of high awning-type windows that permit use of wall space below, closet space and a linen closet in the hall. Convenient to these bedrooms and to the rest of the house is the complete tiled bathroom with glass-enclosed tub. A good-sized outdoor closet is to the rear of the carport for storing outdoor furniture, garden tools, garage supplies, etc. The carport could easily be enclosed in areas which require more car protection. Although this is a basementless design, the house can be built with a full or partial cellar by building a stairway down from the bedroom hall, using a portion of the foyer closet. This family size pleasing small ranch is equipped with all the essentials, yet it economizes on space to keep the costs down.

HOUSE OF COMFORT · Humidification · Heating · Air Conditioning RAYDARNOLDJR. LENNOX Here's the Answer Q -- The other day, in inspecting the shingles on our roof to see what kind of condition they were in, I noticed that the flashing around the chimney has developed a green color. What does this mean and will it cause any trouble? A. -- All it means is that the flashing probably is of good quality. Copper takes on a green color after a period of time. It does not affect the ability of the flashing to keep out leaks, assuming that the metal is still securely in place. Q. -- Settle a dispute, please. Is the top layer of plywood actual wood or is it a ] synthetic? A. -- It's real wood. However, there isil . such a thing as a plywood panel with a fac-1 ing of plastic. Q. -- We decided to repaint our kitchen ceiling a few weeks ago. My wife washed . the ceiling with a detergent and I did the painting. It came out fine. The only trouble is that DOW the walls look kind of seedy although they appeared to be all right before the ceiling was painted. The question is whether the walls have to be washed, like the ceiling, before repainting. We'd like to avoid this if possible because it looks as though it will be a tedious job. A. -- It's common to decide to paint only a ceiling and then find that, by contrast, ·the walls seem dingy. The same thing holds true in reverse if you paint only the walls because the ceiling appears not to need it. Yes. if you plan to paint the walls, you must take steps to remove the grease that so often settles on kitchen walls. The one chance you have to avoid part of the work is that, sometimes, after washing the walls, you find that repainting is not necessary. ; Q. -- I iitdd to ise vanish MM.

Wipe lightly with the grain. Most important, be sure the cloth is dust-free, since dust is the great enemy of varnish. weather days SALE SAVE NOW ON QUALITY LENNOX CENTRAL AIR CONDITIONING AND HEAT PUMPS DARNOLD INC. 515THIROAVi.-SO.CHAS.
