garage this elegant two Story Home excellent for Large families by Andy Lang an appearance of elegance has been achieved in this two Story House without any sign of the ostentation that sometimes accompanies it although great attention has been paid to exterior styling and detail the nicely proportioned facade is not fussy twin chimneys a hip roof and the gentle curve that tapers off the Brick trim give the House a Continental flair that is tastefully balanced by the use of simple horizontal siding and a single window style with dark shutters its a four bedroom House meant for a Large family yet it has been kept within moderate proportions by architect Derick b Kipp so that it does not require an oversized lot through the inherent Economy of a two Story design a lot of extra space is available to Large families who might find a comparably sized ranch out of the a wide Loggia that provides sheltered Access to the House while adding a Strong horizontal line that helps minimize the height of a two Story House the front door opens into the Large living and dining area where screens Are utilized to Channel Traccia and define More intimate spaces without affecting the open

among the various types of houses available the two Story ranks first in the matter of Economy if you have let us say 000 to spend for a House you can get More habitable space for that amount than you can in a split level a bile Vel or a ranch that because its always a Little less expensive to build vertically than horizontally assuming that similar Price materials Are used this though is not the Only consideration in the selection of a House if it were wed All be living in two Story houses whereas the truth is that ranch residences with All the rooms on one floor Are the Best Sellers some persons prefer bedrooms on the second floor some want to avoid Stair climbing some want each room to be a separate entity some like the Ope plan concept which creates visual spaciousness and on and on builders want to construct houses that sell since ranch houses have been outselling All others More ranches Are being built and because More ranches Are being built More persons Are buying them but entirely aside from this Cycle process the persons who Deal in custom built houses architects confirm the popularity of the ranches yet thousands of persons continue to demand two stories or by Levels or split Levels because they Are better suited to their needs a Good Compromise for families who want a modest size House but expect additional residents later on is the one and a Hal Story House this Type of House has everything initially required on the ground level floor but has an expansion attic that can be finished by the owners when necessary basements Are considered a necessity by Many families not Only for their potential As recreational or liable areas but because they Are such spacious storage portions of houses yet thousands of families especially in the War climate sections get along Well without them one advantage of the bile Vel sometimes called a High ranch is that the basement is far enough out of the ground to permit full windows making the space More habitable than a regular basement in any Case the message is Clear select a House that fits your needs rather than a Type that has been recommended to you by family with a different life style baby blueprints the
