Geddes’s House Number 3 included numerous advances that he hoped would make domestic life simpler and more hygienic. One such innovation was the house’s two-car garage with a turntable that allowed motorists to easily drive in and out. The house also had hermetically sealed windows for germ-free living and mechanized one-piece bath units.
Geddes designed the small house, its arrangement, furnishings and furniture. The material was used in a Ladies Home Journal article in April 1931 and in Horizons, Chapter 6, "New Houses for Old."
