Established 18 8 0 scattered throughout the United states Are thousands of for Elom looking old Homes which represent an architectural style that Long ago passed into Disfavour. The passage of two decades or More has stripped these Homes of what Beauty they originally possessed and they stand now structurally sound but a blighting element in the Community. Each new House that goes up in the neighbourhood serves Only to accentuate the Antiquity of the outdated structures. Market value rated most elements of the building Industry Are convinced that modernization is the answer to the problem of what to do with the old House. More practical than Ever now that the work May be financed under the modernization credit Nan of the Federal housing administration remodelling May accomplish much for owners or prospective owners of older Homes. Not Only is the threat of neighbourhood blight removed but the actual Market value of the Home is substantially increased and the Quality of a a livability is restored. No magic has been employed to effect the contrast in these two illustrations. The Home is typical of the Many that need remodelling to convert them into respectable and financially profitable structures. Given new bar a ter the simple sweeping lines of the Home As remodeler in the sketch give the Structure an entirely new character. Gone Are the Hodge podge of detail the unattractive protruding porches the broken irregular roof line. Windows darkened by the overhanging porch roof now Are permitted to serve their purpose by supplying the living room with sunlight. The three second floor windows Are converted into a triple casement of extremely simple design and no longer Are they the focal Center of the House. Overhanging eaves fancy designs in the weather boarding and other a a Gingerbread elements have been stripped off for the Sake of simplicity and the Beauty which comes of simple lines.

Unseasoned plaster contains free Alkali which tends to keep adhesive from forming firm Bond ques. How can Lead flashing be fastened to prevent buckling ans. To avoid buckling due to expansion and contraction cleats not nails should be used to fasten the Sheet Lead. Cleats should be of 3 Pound hard Lead.

Fold the other end into Loose locks Between the Lead sheets or in Case of an overlap or lacking joints at a Given Point into a hem at the Edge of flashing Sheet continuous cleats should not exceed eight feet in length to prevent their buckling upon expansion which in turn causes the flashing to buckle Ani tear.

Material selection in selecting material to be planted clo to the House slow growing compact varieties should be chosen of a Type that is easily controlled and will not develop quickly into a miniature Forest behind which the Small House is hidden. It is equally desirable to place the higher growing specimens at the Corners of the House facing them Down with appropriate shrubs or Low evergreens. A ruffle of planting completely surrounding the dwelling is most unpleasant causing the building to appear to be sitting on a Green i Pillow and not coming Down to j Earth at any Point. Enough of the foundation should be exposed to show that the House is placed solidly on firm ground. The most pleasing effects Are produced by simple treatment and the use of a minimum of materials. Over planting should be avoided. Hedges that can controlled and easily trimmed Are frequently de arable along the lot lines part thu i Early across the Street front to in create privacy and keep paths from being worn in the Lawn.
