EDITOR at large

Three months ago in this space I launched a Name-That-Room contest that I thought might attract a few hundred responses and by now would all be over and done with. My plan was to divulge the winner this month. But my estimate of the numbers was stunningly wrong.

SHARING THE ROAD WITH CYCLISTS

Nine-year-old Leslie knew the traffic rules well. Her parents had seen to that. So when she pulled her bike up to the traffic light alongside the truck, she waited with the rest of the traffic for the light to turn green; then she began to pedal forward.

Article

BUMP-OUTS BONUS SPACE FOR LESS

Adding on doesn't always mean pouring part of your building budget into a hole in the ground. There's a cheaper way to gain extra square footage: add a bump-out. Unlike conventional additions, bump-outs cantilever or hang from the side of the house, so you save the cost of excavating, pouring footings, and building foundation walls. You may be able to ignore setback restrictions, too; in some communities, setback rules apply only to additions constructed on a foundation. Also, bump-outs may be exempt from property taxes in your area. To help you design your own bump-out, we've rounded up a set of examples that includes a bump-out for practically every room in the house-- even the bathroom.

HOME SELLING: SHOULD YOU HELP FINANCE THE DEAL?

Trying to sell your home can be frustrating in these days of expensive mortgage money. If potential buyers can't get financing from traditional sources, your home could languish unsold for many months. A good way out of the dilemma could be to arrange at least part of the financing yourself directly with the buyer through one of several possible "creative financing" agreements. More than 60 percent of all existing house sales last year involved some sort of "creative financing." Here's what you should consider.

NEW LIFE FOR AN OLD ROW HOUSE

It's hard to see any potential in an antiquated row house with a sievelike roof, exposed wiring, dilapidated plumbing, and rotten plaster. But if the shell is sound and the price is right, a turn-of-the-century relic like the one above can be a blue-chip candidate for a 1980s remodeling. All you need to pull it off is a little courage, imagination, perseverence, money, and luck.

AN EASY WAY TO REMODEL

Want to remodel your home without tearing out walls or adding expensive square footage? Rethink your room labels! If, for example, you have a formal dining room that's used only rarely, relabel it a "family room" and put that precious space to work full time. Or, make an awkward hallway earn its keep by furnishing it as a mini-office. Or, how about that neglected basement? Think of it as a cozy, tavern-style dining spot, and its rough masonry walls and exposed ceiling joists become decorating assets. It takes courage to use space innovatively, but it can work wonders in any home, as these examples prove.
