A PLAIN LITTLE CABIN THAT WOULD MAKE A
GOOD SUMMER HOME IN THE WOODS
ONE of the features at Craftsman
        Farms is the housing of guests,
        students and  workers   in small
        bungalows  or   cabins  scattered
here and there through the woods and over
the hillside, standing either singly or in
groups of three and four in small clearings
made in the natural woodland.  Therefore
they are designed especially for such sur-
roundings and are most desirable for those
who wish to build inexpensive summer or
week-end cottages for holiday and vacation
use.  Of course, any one   of the  plans
would serve perfectly well for a tiny cottage
for two or three people to live in, but the
design and general character of the build-
ings is hardly adapted  to the  ordinary
town lot and would not be so effective in
conventional surroundings as in the open
country.
  The cottages built at Craftsman Farms
are meant first of all to live in and next to
serve as examples of a variety of practical
plans for small moderately priced dwellings
designed on the general order of the bun-
galow.  They will be built of stone, brick,
or any one of a number of our native
woods suitable for such construction and
will be as comfortable, beautiful and in-
teresting as we can make them, each one
being specially planned for its own use.
