6B--Aug. 13, 1972 Sunday Ga^u^lml ------- ---- Crurltiton, W«tt VlnliM Colonial Features Add to Rambling Ranch House By Andy Lang The Associated Press This week's home might well be described as a rambling ranch, enriched with a Colonial flavor. Hand-split cedar shingles combined with accents of vertical board-and-batten siding, an arched entrance colonnade and shuttered windows harmonize to create a warm and intimate quality. · · * THE INTERIOR expresses the beauty of the exterior, starting with the main entrance which leads to a spacious foyer. The glazed entry door allows natural light to pour through. A guest closet is conveniently located in the right corner of the foyer. Straight ahead, and to the rear of the house, is the living room with a stone raised- hearth fireplace, large glass patio wall leading to a patio and a beamed cathedral ceil- ing which slopes downward to meet the rear patio wall. The fireplace elegantly and functionally divides the living room from the dining room. The dining room, too, is situated so as to take advantage of the natural surroundings of the outdoors. Sliding glass doors lead to the covered terrace and to the huge patio across the rear of the house. The placement of these rooms toward the rear is conducive to privacy, creating a pleasant flow of indoor and outdoor spaces. ARCHITECT Samuel Paul has made the informal part of the home to the left of the large foyer a housewife's dream. It consists of a huge kitchen-family room combination, a mudroom equipped with laundry and access to the covered terrace and garage, to the rear of which is the heater and storage space. The family room has a beamed c a t h e d r a l ceiling which follows the slope of the Here's House Help Answer Q.--We recently moved into a house that has wide roof overhangs, but these are not sufficient to keep rain water away from the house foundation. I plan on putting up metal gutters and downspouts. In attaching the gutters to the house, how much pitch should there be so that the water flows off freely? Our house is 40 feet on one side, 32 feet on the other. A.--There should be about 2vi inches of slope on the two long sides, about 2 inches on the short sides. While these will be sufficient to drain off the water, your house is large enough to consider the possibility of having the high points of the gutters at the centers of all sides. Rain water thus wtfl flow downward to both ends of each side rather than in one long continuous downward flow on each side. Q.--Our house was recently painted by a professional. He left behind half a can of white paint. Can this be used to paint our outdoor wooden furniture? A.--Not if it's the so-called self-cleaning type of house paint. That kind of paint is made so that it will wear away by a process known as chalking, thus taking surface dirt with it. If it is used on furniture, the chalk in the paint will come off on clothing. roof above, thereby adding dimension and interest to this area. * * w THE K I T C H E N proper opens to the family room and to the dining room. The fully equipped kitchen, with its abundance of cabinets and counter space, is designed in an efficient U-shape and includes a window above the sink. To the left of the kitchen is the mudroom which includes the laundry, a closet and two doors, one leading to the covered terrace and the other to the two-car garage and the heater and storage space. Forming the right side of the modified "H" shape and separated from the rest of the house is the private bedroom wing consisting of three bedrooms with two full baths. The master bedroom faces the rear and is equipped with two closets and a private bath. A HALL BATH services the other two bedrooms. Note that each area of the home--the formal, the informal and the bedroom wing--is separated from each other, thereby giving privacy to the different functions. The foyer allows good access to each distinct area. The whole thing is accomplished in only 1653 square feet of habitable area.
