Transcript SHOWCASE DF HOUSING IDEAS >~pHE HOUSTON HOME BUILDERS ASSOCIATION, sponsors of the Parade of Homes, also is sponsoring one home in the Parade. Designed by Edmund Langwith and Robert King, with Wilson, Morris & Crain, A.I.A., consulting architects, the home is located at 5102 Jackwood Street. U KITCHEN 111 DIN Tl Landscape design is by Fred Buxton, Ralph Cobb and James E. O'Rourke. The home features the indoor-outdoor living theme extensively and the landscaping experts have been given a free rein in making this home outstanding. A large walled courtyard at the front provides a wonderful "outdoor" living room and the home also boasts two inner courtyards. The well-publicized H-bomb shelter is reached through a stairway off the kitchen. Erected by Clear Span Engineering Company, the shelter has been highly praised by national civil defense experts. The "builders'" home is gas air-conditioned by Servel, has three bedrooms, two baths including a separate bath for the master bedroom, family room, living room, separate dining room, dream kitchen and breakfast area. The kitchen includes built-in range, refrigerator, oven, freezer, dishwasher and garbage disposer. Kitchen design and installation is by Avalon Mills. Most of the house features a unique beamed ceiling arrangement, with acoustical plaster. The kitchen panel lighting system is the first used in a speculative house to our knowledge in the Southwest. Other features of the home include an intercommunication system, telephones in the bathrooms as well as other areas, polished flagstone in the kitchen, family room and breakfast area, "Touch-Plate" low voltage lighting system throughout and a floor-to-ceiling brick fireplace wall-and-cabinets in the living room. Frank Ogren served as supervising builder in behalf of the Association. The home will be placed on sale following completion of the Parade. For further information contact the Association office.
