Transcript TUT-AWAY" HOUSE FEATURED PHIL COX qpHE construction story of home building is illustrated in the -L parade home at 8714 Pritchett. This contemporary model has exposed interior sections to show visitors the materials and construction methods that go into home building. "Cut-a-way" features shown include the foundation slab and levels, air-conditioning ducts, ceiling insulation and construction, wall composition, wiring, plumbing, and other interesting phases of building. The exterior is of brick and V-joint wood siding. It is a contemporary design by Duane Myers and Associates. The home is built around the terrace and family room, located at the center. Special feature of design includes two outdoor areas, one opening off the family room to be used as an adult outdoor entertaining section, and another behind the garage to double as a children's play area and utility yard. Accentuating the exterior is a sloping roof section with window gables and a brick planter forming a patio entry way. The entrance has a brick wall to the family room, serving to separate the dining area, living room and family room. To the left of the entrance is the living room which has glass sliding doors onto the adult terrace and high strip windows overlooking the front of the house. To the right of the entrance way is the dining area, which opens onto the kitchen at the front of the house. The kitchen is equipped with Westinghouse built-ins and has a folding wall which can separate it completely from the dining area. The bedroom wing opens from the family room and is spread across the back of the house. The master bedroom has glass sliding doors onto the adult terrace and a complete master bath. All three bedrooms have much window exposure and the children's bedrooms open onto the outdoor play area, so that youngsters need not travel through other parts of the house. The two-car garage opens into a laundry room equipped with Westinghouse washer and dryer. The home is air-conditioned with a General Electric unit. Landscape Design by James E.
