 A BUNGALOW DESIGNED FOR A MOUNTAIN CAMP
 OR SUMMER HOME
                                  S this bungalow is meant either for the
woods, the moun-
                                  tains, or the open country, where the cost
of land does
                                  not have to be considered, it spreads over
a good deal of
                                  ground.  The eastern wing has a frontage
of sixty-four
                           feet and the western of forty-four feet, the verandas
being re-
                           spectively twelve and ten feet.  Also the probable
environment of
                           such a building determines the character of the
exterior.  As we
                           have planned it, this bungalow is built of rugged
field stones set
                           at random, with all the weather stains and accretions
of moss and
                           lichens left to add to the color value.  The site
suggested here
                           gives a southern and western exposure to the wide
verandas
                           which front a lake.  The building itself faces
toward the north-
                           west.  Of the two wings, the eastern, containing
the bedrooms,
                                                extends into the wooded portion
of the land
                                                in order to insure protection
and coolness;
                                                while the west wing looks
toward the lake.
                                                  The interior of this bungalow
is divided
                                                into a living room, a kitchen
and three bed-
                                                rooms.    The living room
is large and com-
                                                fortably arranged, the idea
being to give it
                                                a character in harmony with
the plan, pur-
                                                pose and exterior effect
of the building.
                                                  The kitchen is planned
so that meals may
                                                be served in it in bad weather.
 Ordinarily
                                                the tneals would he served
in the sheltered
                                                corner of the veranda.  
The whole eastern
                                                wing is given up to the bedrooms
which are
                                                all entered from the veranda,
and overhead
                                                is a large storage attic.
