I OB -- An;:. 27. 1972 Sunday Gmelte-Mml ------- Charleston, West Virginia --No Waste Space in Budget Rancher Bv Amlv I.anjj The A.-.«cH"':rrd ;-.-.·; This i? a "no nonsense" house design for those who want good living quarters hut are faced with a budget squeeze. Although it has only NHvj square feet of hnhitnblp area. it has a practical floor plan and an a t t r a c t i v e exterior. What architect Lester Cohen has done is to t a k e advantage of certain cost-cutting measures without sacrificing liva- hility. Included among them are a rectangular over-all plan without cosily breaks and a minimum amount of hall space. * · · FOR OWNERS who might wish a recreational area for teenagers or a general indoor "fun" place for the whole family, the architect has included a suggested breakdown of the basement space. The living room at I he front of the house is just off (he small entrance vestibule. It has a large front picture window and a fireplace, with an archway leading to the dining area al the hack. A rear patio has two entries, one into a vestibule leading to the basement, stair or to the kitchen: the other, sliding glass doors, to brighten the dining area and allow for patio use to extend family and pucol act.i\ il ics. * * * THE KITCHKN has \ r shaped work unit which leaves a pleasant window space for a snack or breakfast area. The dining portion can be screened off if a formal meal is being planned or left open as a family room area next lo the kitchen. The access door from the garage is well-placed to help in bringing in groceries from garage to kitchen but with no need to cross more than the front aisle in the dining room idea for a small family with are used for the front, made roof porch, which provides a to get to ihe kitchen. · · » THE INSIDK-OUTSIDE alcoves al the back of the garage are a great help in patio storage and inside garage pu- taway space.

A new kitchen your uiiiii: I'.nnily \ \ i l l cnii'v! ny Andy I.ang Q.--1 am gelling ready lo finish our attic. Are. there any hints you can give me about putting up the framework? I know something about it. but need my knowledge to be confirmed. A.--Going into every detail of the framing of an at lie would take far more space than is available, hul here is some information that may be of help. Nail 2 hy 4s to the rafters at the height you want the ceiling to be. Nail them sn that ihe edges face upward and outward. While you have some leeway as to Che height of the ceiling, he sure thai the collar beams or joist.s are at least 2 feet below the highest point of the roof. The joist.s must be reinforced if there is an unusually long span. 10 feet, or more. To reinforce ihe joists, nail 1 by 4 supports from the collar beams to the rafter? above the new ceiling framework. Knee wall can be anywhere from 4 to about 5'-j feet. The 4-foot height will eliminate considerably cutting if you use wallboard. plywood or any other material of thai M/.P. But if there are to be a number of huilt-ins and closets, m o r e height is preferable. There are several ways lo attach Ihe lop.s of 2 by 1 studs to the sides of the rafters al ihe desired height. One is lo nail them to the sides of the rafters to form lop plates. In enhcr case, sole plalos are nailed to the floor where the bottom of the wall is to be. These sole plates. 2 by 4s, should be nailed through the subfloor into the joists below with 1-fi penny nails. The studs must be absolutely vertical, so use a level and plumb bob to be certain there is perfect a 1 i g n m e n I. otherwise you'll have to do a lot of shimming later. The studs should be 16 inches apart, on center; ihat is, 1C, inche,.- from the center of one stud to the next. Where extra heavy and rigid material is to he used for the walls, you can get by with studs 24 inches apart on center. Q.--I used some copper tubing recently and tried to bend it, but there was a kink at the center of the bend when I got finished. How can this tubing lie bent without getting that kind of result? A.--To make a smooth bend in flexible copper tubing, use a spring-type t u b i n g bender available at plumbing supply houses and some building supply dealers.
