Narrative from the general building plans [November, 1943] The "F' house, of which there are 250 units and 250 buildings, is a full two story, three bedroom house. The version of an old and much admired plan, it offers every possible utilization of space and advantage of orientation with a minimum of cubic cost. Every room on the house has two exposures. The three bedrooms on the second floor are adequate and all have good sized closets. There is additional closet space on both floors. The dining room and living room and kitchen are all ample. In fact, the kitchen is the only one of all the types that is large enough for a breakfast table. Its cabinets, too, are generous in size. The exterior of this type of house is always boxy. Being nearly square in plan and having two stories make it appear unusually high. This effect is corrected by dropping the ceiling at the front and back of the second floor and by introduction of dormers. Although this style of house is greatly improved by keeping the floor line nearly at grade, this was impractical for several reasons. There is the possible water hazard of a too deeply excavated basement; there is the elimination of areaways or wells for light; and there is the difficulty of handling wood framing too close to grade. All these factors would have increased the expense of the house.
