a billion dollars Because of this myth one of the major ilia of our economic system has flourished un heeded by the public which pays the bill The myth Is that building activity must be governed by the thermometer Did you ever consider how your own decisions in relation to building large or small might affect business Acceptance of the winter building bogey has caused an annual depression not only in the building trades but in all business connected directly or otherwise with building Labor sutlers demand for building supplies drops money involved in building projectsis stagnant And since the buying power of millions is thereby reduced the the butcher and the baker see business slump Building is our second largest industry For three successive years its value has exceeded a total of five billion dollars Authoritative figures indicate that the average monthly volume of construction during Novem ber December January and February is but half the monthly volumo for tho remainder of the year The average monthly decrease in construction amounts to TVhy should we deprive oureplves of full enjoyment of our resources iind definitely handicap the prosperous functioning of our entire industrial organization Every competent contractor and builder knows now that construction can be canled on in winter at a negligible increase in cost and with the sanle assurance ofquality as in summer This is knowledge born ot actual practical theory The thermometer myth has been exploded Winter building means that 1 The individual who plans a home or store or garage enjoys earlier completion and oectipancy i avoids summer scarcity of labor and materials and brings closer the day when he pays rent only to himself 2 The contractor reduces overhead keeps his crews intact and pays only normal wages thereby earning a uniform rate of profit S The builder of large office and apartment buildings meets the sprins demand for new quarters and hastens the receipt of tangible returns on capital invested 4 Municipalities and other governmental groups proceed with im proVements on an uninterrupted schedule and thereby stabilize local G Labor benefits by allyear employment yielding a steady income and by elimination of the need lor a secondary trade C General business profits in that money which would otherwise ro main idle continues in circulation and the buying power of individuals is maintained It ia a historical fact period industrial prosperity has been directly preceded and accompanied by a strong demand for con every depression has followed closely on the heels of a building slump On a reduced scale seasonal idleness in building exerts a similar influence on business conditions For Oils reason if for no other it is a matter of national concern BUILDING BAINS
