¶ This bungalow is meant either for the woods, the mountains, or the open country, where the cost of land does not have to be considered, as it spreads over a good deal of ground. The eastern wing has a frontage of sixty-four feet and the western of forty-four feet, the verandas being respectively twelve and ten feet. Also the probable environment of such a building determines the character of the exterior. As we have planned it, this bungalow is built of rugged field stones set at random, with all the weather stains and accretions of moss and lichens left to add to the color value. The site suggested here gives a southern and western exposure to the wide verandas which front a lake. The building itself faces toward the northwest. Of the two wings, the eastern, containing the bedrooms, extends into the wooded portion of the land in order to insure protection and coolness; while the west wing looks toward the lake.

¶ The interior of this bungalow is divided into a living room, a kitchen and three bedrooms. The living room is large and comfortably arranged, the idea being to give it a character in harmony with the plan, purpose and exterior effect of the building.

¶ The kitchen is planned so that meals may be served in it in bad weather. Ordinarily the meals would he served in the sheltered corner of the veranda. The whole eastern wing is given up to the bedrooms which are all entered from the veranda, and overhead is a large storage attic.
