Bungalow A 1962-65. Dimensions: 24 inches [61 cm] wide, 16 inches [40.5 cm] deep and 12.5 inches [31.5 cm] high
The house shown probably dates to 1962, because it is likely that the large garden board accompanying it was no longer supplied after that date. (The later catalogue pictures are truncated, removing the garden, and it is not mentioned in the text description in 1964-65). This is the smallest of the short series of three flat-packed bungalows, designated A, B and C. Please see the caption to picture 52, previously, for a note on their construction. This model is essentially the central section of the C Bungalow, which may seen in picture 52 but it has a lithographed rear stone wall, set with two smaller windows, rather than the C's large ones. Access to the one room, which is partially divided by a large "feature" stone fireplace, is gained by removing the roof. (The catalogue describes this building as having two rooms). Please see the next picture for a view of the interior of this model. The catalogue claims that the house has "a beautifully laid out extension garden", but this, in fact, appears to have been just a green-painted board, although it did have a pool similar to those of Bungalows B and C. The pool is missing in the example shown here. (The garden to this house may be seen in picture 87, subsequently).

Very sweet! Reminds me of a Penthouse unit; if a flat roof, could be a roof-top patio. Love it!
