WASHINGTON at the White House The big question at Middle burg Va these days How do you build a house with seven bedrooms five and a half baths two dining rooms a study a library a kitchen and a large butlers pantry for The White House announced the estimated construction cost at the above modest figure for a house which President and Mrs Kennedy are building in the heart of the Virginia hunt country Futhermore the White House said the place was being built with union labor and would be completed in the spring The official version of the new house represents either modesty or optimism according to long time residents of the area Construction thus far has reached the point of a founda tion outline into which a thick concrete slab will be poured in lieu of a basement Theres a real money saver not having to big a basement in the rocky terrain of rattlesnake mountain the hill where the house is situ ated west of Middleburg The Kennedys have the use of Glen Ora the estate theyve rented for nearly two years until their new house is ready Considering the weather it could be late summer before the Rattlesnake Mountain home is ready If it is true that the house is being constructed entirely with union labor it must mean im portation of quite a few workers Middleburg is in a section of the country where the building and construction trade unions areseldom found outside of cities What interests the people most is the estimated building cost of The 39 acres of land cost the Kennedys about The building estimate apparently was based on the Fauquier County construction permit It is quite customary for such construction permits to be registered at considerably below actual costs Considering the size and equip ment of the Kennedy house and the practices of other builders who make out construction per mit applications with a view to later real estate and property tax assessments the prevailing local thought is that the new Kennedy place will cost more than It is possible that during con struction the government may want certain types of security equipment included in the build ing and this would send the cost even higher But should such additions be put in at govern ment request for the protection of the President and his family Uncle Sam would fodt the bill for the extras This was the case of the house former P r e s i d e n t and Mrs Dwight D Eisenhower built at Gettysburg Pa after his 1952 A large quantity of structural steel was added at government request plus steel reinforced concrete housing for security equipment An interesting sidelight on the Kennedy construction project turned up in MioMleburg a few days ago One of the oldtimers said that back in 1953 although the Eisenhowers had purchased their Gettysburg land they had not started to build The Eisenhowers drove by an estate up for sale near Middle burg Eisenhower toured the premises with intense interest and came back to the main house glowing with approval According to the Middleburg Version Eisenhower went into a highly laudatory appraisal of the estate and suddenly popped his wife with a glowing question to this effect How do you like it Mamie because I think this is where we should settle She gave him a beaming smile put her foot down politely with a reminder that they had decided on Gettysburg and Gettysburg it would And it was to this very day W
