One of the office men connected with that firm after considerable investigation. Has compiled parallel statements of costs of building a Home now and of erecting a similar House ten years ago he uses As the basis of his compilation a five room Frame Structure with full basement Furnace heat and All things needed to make it modern. His figures indicate it is less expensive to build such a House now than it was a decade ago. This lowering of Cost he says is to be attributed to a reduction in several items among them being lumber Millwork other materials elect ii wiring and the per cent of profit. Also he shows there Are easier terms in financing the project now than there were in Force ten years ago. Labor is higher and plumbing is credited with an increase but he says the plumbing now is better than it was tan years ago. His figures for each principal item involved in the building of a Home of five rooms full basement and strictly modern for each of the two years mentioned Are As follows for 1929 lot $475 lumber $912 -60 other materials $321.65 Mill work $519.70 labor $840 wiring. $131.50 plumbing. $286 heat. $130 miscellaneous. $460, profit etc., $23.55.
