INEXPENSIVE CRAFTSMAN CEMENT BUNGALOWS
         FIRST FLOOR PLAN FOR TWO-STORY BUNGALOW. Twenty-one twenty-foot
elusivelv for summer use. Either
........ fo sum...............r
of them could be built with an
inside wall which would fit them
also for winter, but this, of course,
would add greatly to the expense.
One of the chief advantages of
the construction of these houses
is that when the house is closed
for the winter there is no place in
which mice could build their nests
or mildew collect. Every part of
the house is open to the air. Re-
turning in the spring the owner
needs only to brush down the cob-
webs and wipe away the dust to
find himself quite settled and at
home for the summer.
