I1C--Aiigmt 20, 1972 Sunday Gwtt+Mail " "- "·" '--OltrfmHH. WM VlftMi WEEK'S HOUSE By Andy Lang The Associated Press Here's one of those woodsy- type houses that fit into vacation surroundings yet can be used now or later as a retirement home. It's rugged in appearance, utilizing soM timber, wavy wood siding, wood roof shingles and a wood balcony rail to give it a natural look. Even the stones used in the chimney and near the front door are large and irregular, adding to the country character of the structure. NEVERTHELESS, architect Rudolph A. Matern has given Design L-64 all the amenities regarded as necessary for gracious living in this day and age. The floor plan is'com- pletely modern, with the much-desired arrangement whereby all rooms are directly accessible from the front foyer. And there are provisions for year-round use, such as full insulation, basement, heating and air conditioning if required. A good-sized cathedral window is located in the end wall of the 21-foot living room to reveal the outdoor view. There is another large window at the front, plus sliding glass doors leading to a spacious porch at the rear. Rugged Vacation Rancher Will Fit Any Surrounding in Any Season An oversized 9ton« fireplace decorates one of the living room walls. Still another feature is a balcony above, with half of the ceiling soaring up one and one-naif stories. * * * THE LIVING ROOM is to the right of the foyer, which is dominated by an open spiral stairway to the second floor. It affords the guest an immediate impression of what might be called casual luxury. To the left of the foyer is a kitchen with a dining alcove, two windows and a service door. A larder provides season-to-season, nonperishable food storage. A lavatory is a step away and convenient to the living room. There are two bedrooms at the rear on the first floor, with a bathroom between. Both have double exposures. In the bedroom hall, there is a door leading to the back porch. The door is so located STUDY PLAN COUPON You can get a study plan for The House of the Week by sending this coupon and SO cents to House Plans, Sunday Gazette-Mail, Box 2993, Charleston, W.

The spiral stair unwinds on a balcony overlooking the living room below and, a few steps to tiie right, there is an outdoor balcony porch. To the rear is a studio or third bedroom with a large window and, in a dormer niche, a window seat. It all has the studio-type appearance you expect in a leisure home. This is a house that will have wide acceptance anywhere. Household Help Answers Q. -- The house we Just bought has a finished basement. It's now one huge room and we would like to divide it into two rooms. I know the general principles, since I finished a couple of rooms in an attic in a previous house, but I am not sure how to attach the sole plates to the basement floor, I plan on using 2 by 4s for the sole plates. A. -- Experiment with one 2 by 4, seeing whether you can drive a concrete nail through it into the floor. On most floors, you will be able to do so, although it takes plenty of elbow grease. But on some, it won't work too well and the nails will bend. In that case. attach the sole plates to the floor with a special adhesive. Your hardware dealer or lumber yard will give you the correct type if you explain what it is for. Q.--We have the massive job of removing the paint from our shingled house. We finally decided to have it done professionally. Someone suggested sandblasting. Will it work on wood? A.--Yes, provided that it is not oil paint and there are not a large number of coats. Q.--I have tried two places without result in trying to obtain some wooden plugs for use in floors. Where can I purchase them? A. -- Many lumber yards and some hardware stores and building supply dealers carry them. But if you can't get them there, you almost certainly will at a store .that sells boat supplies.
