The dwelling has been selected by American Builder magazine, 30'Church St., New York 7, N. Y., as its Plan No. 36. American Builder says that Walter T. 'Anicka, the architect, has adopted practical design, sound plannhig.and.simple framing as arcnitectural principles and thus "comes up with a house that can be reproduced in permanent materials at an absolute minimum cost.". . The large, divided front window is a feature of Plan No. 36. With the adjoiniiig plywood panels, a striking central motif Is created. Even mora interest can be added by the use of dark, contrasting colors near the entrance way.. - Contrasting materials also are l used on the gable ends and the garage door. For the roof, the architect suggests. shingles of a color which will harmonize pleasingly with other exterior hues, of the house, and, with the colors of neighboring dwellings. The dwelling has three bed rooms, each of ample size. The. dining alcove is an extension of the living room, in the modern, informal manner. The kitchen is situated for convenience to .the I dining alcove. (Detailed a complete homea of bnildtaftnfermatton i able from American Church St, New Xbi Befer to Plan No. W Mi 414
