          A BUNGALOW WITH OPEN-AIR DINING ROOM
                                           from storms to allow the outdoor
life to go on
                                           through any sort of weather.
                                             The living room occupies the
whole center of
                                           the house, except for the recessed
porch in
                                           front, and it is one of the hest
oxamples of the
                                           Craftsman idea of the decorative
value that
                                           lies in revealing the actual construction
of the
                                           building. Everyone knows the sense
of space
                                           and freedom given by a ceiling
that follows
                                           the line of the roof.  It seems
to add materially
                                           to the size of the room and when
it is of wood
                                           it gives the keynote for a most
friendly and
                                           restful color scheme.     In this
case the whole
                                        K room is of wood, save for the rough
gray
                                           plaster of the walls and the stone
of the fire-
                                           place.  A balcony runs across
one side, serving
                                           the double purpose of recessing
the fireplace
