11. A view from the living room into a courtyard. This is 180 degrees around from the last shot. The windows to the left are glass doors to rooms on the wing to the front left side of the house. Slightly out of the picture and to the right is a wall of the dining room (coming up), complete with glass door.

12. Library, from the same hallway. To the left is the door onto the porch seen in #3. The library is a bit more specific, for studying. It’s more sheltered than other areas.

13. The dining room was designed around the table, which was brought from the old house. The design allowed all 32 of to be seated for dinner at the same table. It is really many tables connected. On either side of the round partition are entrances to the kitchen, very convenient for servers. On either wall are large windows, the one to the left is the door onto the porch just seen in #11.

14. Kitchen. Butcher block counter for passing food to servers or for buffets. There are cabinets on both sides of the area beneath the counter. Back door is just through the doorway. Connie the cook prepares a meal in the kitchen. Connie prepared five lunches and five dinners each week during the school year.

Connie succeeded Thelma, who had retired c. 1977 after many years. Thelma will always be remembered for her "gut bombs," heavy-duty cinnamon rolls. Once Thelma served mashed potatoes along with Turkey Tuoriniemi*. Someone asked her why she served two starches, and she said, "The boys got to have their mashed potatoes!"
*Originally Turkey Tetrazzini, changed as a nod to Bill Tuoriniemi who went on to become Chief Regulatory Accountant at Washington Gas in the D.C. area

16. Dishwashing area. This is what’s on the other side of those shelves seen in #15. The machine on the right is the dishwasher. Everyone took turns on rotation for dishwashing duty.

17. Going downstairs, this is another living room area. Lights are equipped with dimmers for a variety of moods. Again a large open space, with rustic paneling. Basement rec room complete with Foosball table.

19. Around the corner and parallel to that hall is the lower hall of sleeping rooms. Once again they are made to be very open and flexible. This feature has been taken great advantage of. Most rooms have lofts for the beds, yielding a lot more floor space. A typical room. I can't remember who lived there at the time, and have no note as to which room it was. Note the dial phone.
