High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - March 3, 1974, High Point, North Carolina Ii High Point Enterprise sunday March 3,1974 a Haise of the Weer for do it your seller window painting tedious painting the windows inside a room is probably the most unpopular part of Interior painting. It takes time and careful attention with a Brush to prevent the kind of Sloppy result that is displeasing to the Eye As Well As a Harbinger of stuck sashes. A Sash Brush should be used. Its angled bristles make it easier to handle along narrow strips and in confined areas. The Brush should be dipped Only about one third its length with the excess rubbed off on the inside of the can. Press Down lightly on the handle so that the bristles spread out in fan like fashion permitting just the edges of them to touch the Glass As you move the Brush along. It takes a Little practice to get the Knack of painting so As not to smear paint on the Glass. But even if you Are Good at it have a rag Handy so that if you should make a mistake the paint on the Glass can be wiped off immediately. If you Are not adept at this you can use a thin piece of cardboard to slide along the Glass with the movement of planter decorates new Home dutch Bahn Flavouring dominates exterior of vacation House by Andy Lang this warmly attractive Structure offers to vacationing owners the Charm of the typical dutch farm country barn. Highlighting its interesting exterior is a built in conversation piece a wooden water wheel about 6 feet High sitting at the front Corner of the House and displaying an array of Flowers pouring Down its paddles and into a Stone Plant trough. The wheel is immobile and the paddles Are actually Plant shelves. The principal water the wheel will receive is the rain which will run off a Small shed roof above on to the Flowers. The degree of realism this decorative wheel can attain is limited Only by the Green thumb enthusiast s ability. Architect Rudolph a. Matern has designed a Gambrel roof that tops off a treatment of picket shaped vertical Board Wall finish which in turn forms a skirt across Boulder Stone at the first floor. The Stone faces the front and the right Side Back to the Stone Chimney. Heavy Hasps decorate the double front Entrance doors and a half barrel planting tub graces the front porch to the right. A tiny barn Type window on the left acts As an Entrance sidelight. Zigzag self supporting rail fencing decorates the front Lawn. This interesting cottage has As much Charm inside As it does outside. To the right a beamed ceiling front to rear living room awaits the pleasure of family and guests. To the left the service area spans front to rear As Well. The 22-foot living room has a Large Stone fireplace on the right Wall. To o Wood brackets support a heavy Timber mantel across the Hearth. Two Large windows front and rear bring in plenty of natural Light and provide a Good View of the vacation land outdoors. A rear door allows Access from the living room to the rear covered porch. Entrance to the dining room is through a wide Arch. The service Wing is composed of a rear laundry area Isle Type Kitchen and a full Bath with stall Shower to the front. The food preparation space is Well appointed and spacious for this modest sized vacation Home. Up the open railed Stair the aspects of a Gambrel roofed barn Are noticeable. Sidewalls Angle in slightly with an exposed beam running along the top ceiling break. This was designed purposely to lend authentic flavor to the sleeping quarters. A bathroom at the head of the Stair serves the bedrooms which Are grouped around a Square open Hall. Each bedroom has a closet at least 5 feet Long and each has sloping sidewalls. The sloping Walls Are Wood panelled while a Dormer window provides a recess for an Interior window planter. The other window has barn Type decorator shutters to the floor. Wood ceiling beams Are also used in the bedrooms. R-53 statistics design r-53 has a living room dining room Kitchen laundry area and bathroom on the first floor totalling 760 Square feet. There is a rear porch set within the Over All dimensions of 35�?T 8�?� by 26�?T 4�?�. There Are three bedrooms and a bathroom on the second floor totalling 711 Square feet. Wood bleaching May be necessary design and treatment of main bedroom Are shown -�?��?�35-8" a. / first floor second floor beamed ceiling living room is highlight of layout after removing the paint or varnish from a piece of furniture where you intend to refinish a bit of color May remain in the Wood. When sanding will not take off the undesirable Hue bleaching is usually the Only solution. While old time Wood finishers mixed their own bleaches or used oxalic acid solutions it is now generally conceded that the so called commercial bleaches produce More consistent results. These consist of two solutions usually applied separately. While these bleaches Are fairly much the same there Are some minor but important differences among the brands. It is vital therefore that the directions on the Container be followed to the letter especially in regard to the elapsed time Between applications on the two solutions and the manner in which All traces of the bleach must be rinsed off after the operation is completed. If you decide to bleach the materials must be applied to the entire surface not merely to the one or two areas where color still remains. This will insure the same degree of whiteness Over the full surface. Bleaching has another purpose other than the removal of color. Some Wood finishers use it every time they refinish an object maintaining that the resulting smooth even tone enables a new coat of stain to a a take without danger of a multicoloured effect. And bleaching is an essential step in obtaining certain Blond and Novelty finishes. Most of the time a bleach will raise the Grain of the Wood making it necessary to Sand the Wood thoroughly before proceeding with the finishing Job. The bleach solutions Are Strong chemicals and must be used with great care. You will need rubber gloves and old clothes that cover up As much of your arms and body As possible. If you Are not going to have a deep respect for the strength of the product better not use it. And if you should accidentally spill even a drop on your skin Stop what you Are doing instantly and Wash the area thoroughly with water. As with most chemicals never pour the bleach into anything made of Metal. While there Are specially treated Metal cans that will withstand the chemicals the Metal containers you have around the House will not do so. If any pouring must be done use Glass or earthenware. The Brush to prevent paint from getting on the pane. Those throwaway pieces of cardboard that come inside new shirts and those that have been professionally laundered Are excellent for this purpose. Some persons use masking tape but this can be an annoyance because if it in t done perfectly paint imperfections will be seen when the tape is removed. Should a Little paint get on the Glass despite All your efforts to prevent it and should you fail to wipe it off instantly wait until it is completely dry then scrape it off with a single Edge razor Blade. With the Standard double Hune windows it is especially important that the parts of the windows be be painted in a certain sequence. Before touching a Brush to a window unscrew any hardware attached to it. This May be a slight annoyance but trying to paint Closen to the Metal without getting paint on it can be even More vex some. The first step is to raise the lower Sash and lower the upper Sash. Paint the inside Edge of the upper meeting rail then the top of that rail then a couple of inches up the Buntins the wooden strips dividing the Glass assuming there Are Buntins. Next lower the Bottom Sash and raise the upper Sash the opposite of what you did previously Only this time leave a fraction of an Inch leeway so that each Sash has a Little clearance. Paint All exposed surfaces. The window Sill Frame and surrounding trim Are done last. After the paint has dried overnight carefully a Ove the sashes up and Down a couple of times. This will prevent future sticking.

I think i have a pretty Good idea of How it is done but do not know How Many strap hangers to use How is this determined a. A the strap hangers should be installed every 2 or 3 feet or somewhere Between. Be sure you use aluminium hangers and not some other kind of Metal. Q. A during a storm a Large tree in our paved backyard was Bent slightly causing the Concrete several feet away to crack and break. All the Breaks Are in a single slab that is rather Large and probably much too heavy to lift. What s the Best Way to remove the slab before i begin work on repaving the area a. A use a masons chisel and a heavy duty Hammer. Insert the chisel in one of the cracks and Pound away until the Concrete comes Loose. Do the same thing in other gaps until instead of having one Large slab you have a lot of smaller pieces that can be lifted and taken away. Should there be a piece left too heavy to lift break it up with the chisel and Hammer. Wear safety glasses or some kind of goggles when doing work of this kind. Q. A the finish in one part of our living room floor has worn off. The original finish is rather Dull. Can i Patch the worn area with varnish or shellac a. A it sounds As though a penetrating floor sealer was used when the floor was finished. Varnish or shellac will produce a Glossy surface that will stand out from the rest of the floor. Try a penetrating floor finish to get a reasonable match.
