Two ingenious houses, low-cost and compact, are displayed exactly as they will be constructed, ready for immediate occupancy, on sites at Montauk, Long Island, and near Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Intended as either vacation or year-round homes, they are designed for minimum housekeeping, and have such space-savers as beds that fold into walls. The purchase price includes a 75-by-100 foot lot and all furnishings, complete to toothbrushes.
The "Convertible" is sold for $13,490. The house has a redwood plywood exterior and mahogany-finished interior paneling. It has only 775 square feet of space, yet it sleeps four - two in a bedroom above, two on a sofa bed in the living room.
The "Expanded Convertible" house sleeps eight, with two bedrooms and a half-bathroom added to the basic Convertible floor plan. Built of masonry block and stucco, this house costs $16,990.
* Admission: free.
