For the home- owner who has never had enough closets, this house is and fruit room are in the base- ment, and plans provide for a two car garage if you wish. By DONALD II. BRANN If you want to improve your way of living, your outlook, and your image as seen by your friends, try something new, something you can excel in. There is nothing like car- pentry to soothe the nerves, buov up the spirits, 2nd slretch the "budget. When you build something that improves your family's living pattern, while it shows you a better way to in- vest spare time, you create a memorable experience, plus a carefree time zone. Learning where and how to find peace of mind in this hectic world is vitally important to each ol us. Those who long for a cool, quiet place to relax during the hot summer months, a place to dine and entertain out-of-doors, this build-it-yourself patio pro- vides the perfect answer. Any- one who enjoys outdoor living will 'hd this easy-to-bnkl pa- tio an attractive solnlion to his problem. When built according to step- by-step directions outlined in the home improvement book offered below, this patio pro- vides a cool, convenient, dec- orative and livable area that serves many needs while it i keens adjacent rooms degrees cwler. Unlike many Iranslu- i cent plastic-roofed areas, the secret to this patio is in an j ingenious air vent that main- tains free flow of air even on the calmest day. Directions assume you have never built a patio, and explain every step from selecting a site, reproducing a plan if same is required by local building codes, excavating foundation trenches, pouring a concrete slab, laying flagstone, framing rafters, and covering wilh translucent plastic panels. Kven those who have not used a hammer and saw since high school days arc surprised to see how easily and nrofes- sionally they can huild this pa- tio at much less than half the lowest estimated contract cost. This book enables you to save three ways. You save when you know what needs to be done, and if you decide to have the work done by others, you are able to talk intelligent- ly when discussing construc- tion with a contractor. You save when you buy materials needed. Direclions explain how to estimate the exact amounl required to build your patio to size desired. You save addi tional money if you decide to help an experienced carpen- ter. Send S2.25 in cash, cheque or money order for Patio Book No. C31 to Ca.rpcnt.rv Dent., j The Lelhbridge Herald.
