(Henry Fliess was the architect for many of the original homes in Don Mills. Although this specific plan isn’t one of them, it would be right at home on any one of DM’s winding streets. The following is typed verbatim from the article. )
“If yours is the average young Canadian Family you probably wish a dozen times a day for a roomy, economical house that becomes even roomier as the children grow.
Here at last is the answer: Select Home No 7. Architect Henry Fliess designed this low-cost, two-bedroom house with space for a third bedroom to be finished when needed.
There’s a split level basement with space for that extra room and a downstairs washroom, too. As the family grows, you have a handsome bedroom overlooking the garden.
Though this is a simple, inexpensive (about $15,000) house it has that rare quality -space. Fliess achieved this with a “one-slope” roof which, in the living room, is exploited right up to the ceiling.
The house is designed for a 50 foot lot. With a wider lot you can build the carport at the side instead of the front, if you prefer. For a little more money you can install a fireplace indoors where bookshelves are now shown.”
