The Durant has twin facing gables and a certain amount of charm. Designed as a small starter house, efforts were made to make the plan both appealing and affordable. Often, designers were fairly successful, but you'll see upon examination that this particular plan, efficient though it is, would benefit from a few more windows. Rather than the enclosed stairway at the far end of the living room, we would use one of the pull-down stairways to the attic instead and add French doors for garden access at the rear of the house.
