Four popular Craftsman houses, pp. 301-304
FOUR POPULAR CRAFTSMAN HOUSES "W THERE can I see Craftsman house designs?" In answer to a persistent de- V , mand, we are intending to reproduce and to describe each month in the (CRAFTSMAN MAGAZINE four Craftsman houses. This will be continued until we have reproduced the two hundred house designs which we have on file. A front elevation and floor plans will be shown on each page. We will furnish tentative estimates and cost of complete plans upon request. Address: Service Department, Craftsman Publishing Co., 6 East 39th St., New York City. NO. 55: FOUR-ROOM CRAFTSMAN BUNGALOW OF FIELD STONE T HE bungalow illustrated here has been planned as a summer or all-year home for some country spot where there is plenty of field stone, although it may of course be built of other materials if there is no stone at hand. The construction of the roof makes the building especially suitable for the top of a low hill or knoll, and if the material of the walls is repeated in the steps, or entrance, or in a low wall around the garden, it will help to link the little dwelling more closely to its surroundings. In the working drawings of the building we have shown the fireplace carried up to the ceiling in field stone, with a wide wood lintel above the fireplace opening. If there is no stone to be had, the chimneypiece may be of brick or cement. In such a simple country home no separate dining room seems necessary, for the living room being next to the kitchen will answer this purpose, and when the weather is fine the meals will no doubt be taken out on the porch. The bedrooms are arranged so that they will be con- venient to the bathroom, and three closets are provided. If thi.s i not enough storage space, box seats may be used in the living room beneath the front windows. FLOOR PLAN OF STONE BUNGALOW NO. 55 301 5.
