Picture at right Hows Metal termite shield. A i ionic for $2,100 this is House a shown in the Federal housing administration s technical bulletin no 4. A a principles of planning Small it is simplicity itself with a certain Charm derived from its very Lack of pretension. The rooms Are of Good size and Well proportioned and lend themselves admirably to furniture placement. Without tile cellar the Utility room provides ample space for both the Heater and the laundry trays and the unused Wall space could be equipped with shelves to hold the preserves Ana canned goods the dining Alcove in the Kitchen could have the built in furniture shown or a table an chairs that Are movable and therefore Cavil i to clean could be used in its place. The bedroom Ait Well ventilated and have Good closets and easy Access to the bathroom. The housing administration estimates that this House could be erected at a West ranging from $1,750 to $2,100. I housing question Box co ways will build on main Street lot q what is the proper depth or each Side of lie door then a sad Kitchen shelves a for dishes the shelves should not be less than to Lurnes. For canned goods and dry groceries they should be narrower if there is plenty of shelf room. Six or seven Inch shelves for packaged Gro j caries and 4-Inch shelves for cans Are Ideal. On deeper shelves Small cans and containers get hidden be i Hind larger ones but on these liar 1 rower shelves every object is in Plain sight. A q is there anything i can do to Correct sagging shutters a about the Only tiling o do Short of h iving them rebuilt is to put right Angle Iron braces at the i Corners. If you want to a to a Little extra expense these can be made like an i hinge and supplant the existing portion of the hinge i that is fastened to the shutter. Q Are there any reasons Why a i clothes closet should not be put in i a bathroom a the Only objection is the t i amount of humidity present in a j i bathroom. This will Wilt certain fabrics like Muslin and Organ die q is it necessary to have those i wooden door Sills under All inside i doors a no. The Only place they Are needed is where the floor material on each Side of the door Are different for instance at a bathroom door where there is Wood on on it t i Side and tile on another. They Are j also used where the direction of to e flooring boards is different on die or Sill is used to cover the Junction Between the flooring boards. If the floor Are carefully Laid however saddles May be omitted at such door. Q How can i build an inexpensive Bird Bath a the cheapest and probably the easiest Way to build a Bird Bath is to stretch a piece of Burlap Over the open end of a barrel Nail it securely and then pour a fairly stiff Rich Concrete mixture on it. The weight of the Concrete will make the Burlap Sag enough to make a shallow dish. Smooth this with a wad of Burlap or a Block of Wood or any other convenient object following the curve of the Burlap. And when the Concrete a hardened sufficiently remove it from the barrel if a smoother exterior is desired plaster it with More Concrete and smooth As described. This will be crude but for i a Bath that is to rest on the ground it is quite satisfactory. Or. And mrs.
