-Curteva. t» Augusi24,1975 Traditional Details Give House 18th Century Charm, Elegance ByAidy Lug The Atiotiated freu Interesting traditional details give this house the elegance and charm of a certain type of Eastern seaboard architecture popular in the 18th century. Brick and shingles are shown on the exterior, although the substitution of stone in lieu of brick will not detract from Design R-130 provided the stone is kept in scale with the balance of the house. Care has been taken by Architects Her- man York and Raymond Schenke to provide interesting first impressions when first entering the foyer. The fireplace in the living room is on the far wall, with a bow window toward the front. These two points of interest will help in the interior design. The dining room is open planned off this room with large windows looking out toward a rear garden. '* * · A COMBINATION family room and kitchen with fireplace is reminiscent of the Early American "keeping ropm," here labeled by the architects as a "fireside farm kitchen." The view into this area from the front entrance foyer is enhanced by the sliding glass doors which lead directly to the rear terrace. A serving shelf from the kitchen serves as a pass- through for outdoor dining. The cellar stair in the kitchen is a desirable convenience should the downstairs be finished as a rainy-day play area for the children. The laundry and lavatory are located between the garage and foyer. In this case, the lavatory can be used from either the formal area of the foyer or from R-/30 ' the kitchen nearby. 4 The garage is large, with generous areas for outdoor storage. A door to the rear makes access to the garden areas a simple matter. The mud closet has all but become a must in the American home, especially in a day of casual dress. * * * ON THE UPPER floor are three bedrooms and a complex of bathrooms, the layouts of which need to be studied to be appreciated. In each of these bathrooms, there are added fixtures in a "split arrangement" to give additional use to each , area. The owner's bathroom has both a tub and separate shower stall, giving added flexibility of use. There are four closets in the owners' bedroom and two closets in each of the two other bedrooms. A feature which should create much in- terest is the free-standing stove in the owners' bedroom. It is shown as an optional feature, but can be easily installed, for the chimney from below is directly behind the bedroom wall. All bedrooms have cross ventilation with the windows spaced to give maximum use of wall space for furniture. When You Think of Building and Remodeling...

Followers of Open Road Can Enjoy Triple Treat of Camper, Boat, Carrier It's a camper! It's a boat! It's a car-top carrier! Now here's a triple treat for all you followers of the open road. You'll get many thousands of hours enjoyment with this one simple Vacation-Pac travel unit. First, there's the Vacation-Pac Capsule (or carrier). It's adaptable to a trailer frame or roof of the family car, offering 36 cubic feet of streamlined, weatherproof carrying space. This leaves the car interior free for its passengers to stretch out and relax in. . It's easy to convert the Capsule into the Vacation-Pac Camper. After a long, hard day's drive, setting up a complete tent- camp on the ground may not be too enjoyable. In fact, the whole idea of sleeping on the ground and the cost of sophisticated trailers or motels has kept a lot of would- be weekenders and cross-country travelers at home. Our pattern instruction sheet will tell you how to make this tent assembly which can be quickly erected within the capsule itself, atop the car. When collapsed, the tent assembly is a small 15-pound package. Then there's the Vacation-Pac Boat. The Capsule takes readily to the water, its broad flat bottom providing maximum stability. Propulsion is easy with a small outboard motor.
