of course, the central covered patio. The clerestory
roof, used for the first time last year in Canal building,
lets light and air into the dining-living room.

The house shown in this picture is located on one
of the highest points in the Ancon Boulevard develop-
ment — on the Boulevard where it turns into the new
housing area in the vicinity of the Christian Science
Church.

A DUPLEX VERSION of the patio house (Type
335) can be seen without a roof at the bottom of the
hill on which the Osborns are standing. The duplex
is two Type 334's put together.

Five of these duplexes are being built in Ancon
and 1 1 in Margarita this year.

A NEW TYPE COTTAGE (Type 331) is shown
across the street from the duplex in the second picture
from the top and in the third picture from the top,
in which the Bowens are shown in the doorway.

This is a comparatively small three-bedroom house
with two baths and a maid's room, which also has a
bath. It has an L-shaped living room with dinette
space.

There are 13 of these houses under construction
along Ancon Boulevard in the new development area;
three in Diablo Heights; and 19 in Margarita.

A similar house (Type 332) which has two bed-
rooms and a large kitchen with dinette space is
another of the new types in this year's building pro-
gram. Xine of the Type 332 houses are under con-
struction in Ancon and 37 in Margarita.

THE OXLY FOUR BEDROOM HOUSE in this
year's building program is Type 329, shown in the
bottom picture. The three being built this year are
all in Ancon.

This is the breezeway house, built for the first time
last year in Diablo Heights (Type 328) with minor
changes in floor plan and with a bedroom added.

The four-bedroom patio type house shown here
has in addition to the central covered patio, a roofed
area 12 feet wide between the bedroom and living
room wings, providing something like a covered
terrace. ~ £■ NEW TYPE, THREE-BEDROOM COTTAGES IX ANCON AXD MARGARITA
