A e e essential Sta the c Mmott knit Jar individualistic Kitchen should receive consideration in planning of any new House a garage is almost As necessary in the plan of a House nowadays As a Kitchen or living room. There Are few families in Homes of their own who do not have cars so tile garage has a become a major problem in planning and designing houses of All sizes. The first question that comes up is where to put the garage. Shall it be detached shall it be connected by a porch or shall it be an integral part of the House when automobiles first came into Vogue the garage was stuck in the Back of the lot where the stable used to be and perhaps the fear of fire had something to do with placing it there too. Later. As this fear decreased. It was hooked onto the House by a porch or As an Extension. Usually it was placed in an inconspicuous position still resembling the poor relation. But lately architects have recognized the fact that it is part of the House and Are designing it As such. And they place its door j As near tile Street As it possible. Both to shorten the necessary driveway and to keep the rear of the place Clear for development. There is also the matter of keeping it heated in Winter. A garage should be deep enough to accommodate a car Comfort ably without having to gauge the distance by inches and it should be wide enough to allow free passage on at least one Side of the car. Where possible it is advisable to add a few feet in one direction to accommodate a w Ork Bench. In collarless houses an additional foot or two provides a space for rough storage. The door should be of a Type that can be easily operated both from within and without. It is not necessary to fire proof the inside of the garage unless the code demands it. But it is advisable to do so if possible. For wherever inflammable Are stored there is always the possibility of fire. So precautions should be taken. You May fireproof your present property with funds obtained under the terms of the modernization credit plan of the Federal Hou lug administration. Aluminium paint deflects heat of summer Sun research has shown that to a Large extent the heat in a Home in summer is due to Radiant heat from the Sun. Simple Means by which a considerable amount of this heating effect of the Sun May be retarded Are the use of awning window shades which Are coated with aluminium foil or aluminium paint on tile Side exposed to the Sun or by the use of venetian blinds tile outside of the slats being painted with aluminium paint. By exposing metallic surfaces to the Sun tile Radiant heat is reflected to a sufficient degree to produce added summer Comfort. When coated shades or venetian blinds Are used. The windows should always be opened slightly preferably at top and Bottom to allow for a Small amount of ventilation.
