It should create for you a feeling of re.slfnl content- inciil—a feeling of friendly comfort, resulting in ease of mind and con- Icnled relaxation. Unlike old shoes, it should present an ap]>earaiice of neatness, smartness and appropii- I Uninformed builders would not no- Itice this point and build a straight, i rigid, nninteieiliiig roof line tot- jnlly without, ihe sofl. Inicrcsling , iiiiiilily Intended by the designer. | The designer's intention of, •is lo portray a feeling of time passed, a slight roof sag being .1 natural result of lime. Looking at Ihe exterior of to. day's home, we discover many In- Im-Mlnij tilings. Tlie walls lire •coinmcn brick, whitewashed—nit in; terming. inex]>eiisive trealinem jSlucco on metal lalh could be sul>- tliluied.

The downstairs bedrooms are corner rooms with crass lighting nnd cross veiitllallon, both rooms good sliced and willi UiU, of closet space. A ba'.li with a built-in tub nnd shower is between.

A large .-.image- space is provided in the altic. This Is a home that will apjieal to of discriminating taste lor ii Is architecturally correct in every detail. There ha.s bucn no compromise for miallly and It Is as auilicnlli: In detail as modern architect!.re cnn make it. A Divided Dutch Door * Gives Charm to Garden A divided Dutch door may npatly solve the problem left behind by the unromantic homebuilder, who makes his houses ateness — nppropriateness in me feme of fitting nnd belonging 10 its environment. Such n house is the one pictured lodny. As we study the architect's rendering, we are impressed by Ihe i spirit of charm which picvails. the friendly informal atmosphere and tlie inviting hospitable mien. Those nre attributes we should strive for when building a home. The skeptic may argue that Ihis | is easily done in a pictme inris- ' much as h clever artist can create most any desired eflect. but—"ivy to do it when actually building the :n dove cote and attractive uorrner, ! supported by graceful biackels, on Ihe roof of the upstairs bedroom. A balcony with Its decorative grille; work adds cluim and dfstlnclive- ness. The front door, well designed, is protected by a copper hood. The I chimney is a real chimney—not n I spindly slack of brick and moiliir. • At i he top, there is a simple design which adds to its effectiveness without adding to its cost. Perched | on the front entrance is a wise old to the kitchen. He has made no provision for ptople within. poiiig to their gar- aens. except through the kitchen It may be difficult to place a garden-entrance door in the dining room and living room. But one of the windows mav be easily converted into a divided door— the upper half, simply an overgrown shutter, swinging out nnd intended to be left opsn In pleasant weather; the lower half beinu n half-door.

Innltenilon to important detail is the cause for most disappointment, u cause that can be remedied by following carefully and competently prepared workinr drawings.
