A trellis at each side above a plastered wall 30 inches high provides a dramatic approach to the area in this cosy three bedroom bungalow. The kitchen is in the popular front location 1193 SQ FF which allows the master bedroom and area to be along the rear wall, ideal for a site with a view to the back To enjoy that view, the living room has large win- dows each side of the fireplace and a French door to the terrace The kitchen has a breakfast nook and easy access to basement and gar- age and basement plan provides for a large recrea- tion room Frogs, toads fun pets Of all the pets, few provide so much interest, entertain- ment and nature instruction for so little cost as frogs or toads Thes harmless amphibians are odorless, clean and easy to look after. Furthermore, they need not cost a penny to buy. Small children particularly can spend hours engrossed in watching the activities of pet frogs and toads You can easily make your own terranum Its simplest form need be no more elaborate than wooden frame covered with fine wire mesh. Your Garden Bird feeding good wintertime hobby By ISABELLE R. YOUNG F.R.H.S. We have had one of the most beautiful falls this year and I'm certain most of us have really enjoyed it getting caught up with all our outside garden chores Sooner or later, however, it will have to end and the snow and cold will be with us. It is at this time that food becomes increasingly harder to obtain by our "feathered friends" and so once again we must give them a 'hand out' Some people seem against feeding the birds, especially the English sparrows Although they may not be too popular at times, these little fellows look after themselves exceedingly well most of the year (too well sometimes when they devour the succulent leaves of sprouting peas, lettuce and corn) But, without a doubt, taking into consideration the amount of insects and weed seeds they consume, they do more good than harm and should, therefore, be protected and looked after when they are unable to do so themselves. A certain amount of beat-producing food like suet or pork rind is readily acceptable during the cold winter months Once a bird becomes familiar with a feeding station or spot he will come to it readily. I have had some wild bird seed mixture on a shelf on the patio for a week or so, and the birds are beginning to make themselves at home, although still a little timid at times. The questions is often asked, "what should I feed the Most of tne ones around at this time of year and in this area are sparrows, and at certain times, the cedar waxwings The latter enjoy the mountain ash berries that persist on the trees all winter Have you ever watched the waxwings eating'' It is said they are a very polite bird and from observing them, this would seem to be true. I have seen them perched on a branch of mountain ash passing from one to another the same red berry, each seem- ing too courteous to eat it They also fancy apples, raisins or other dried fruit that has been partly soaked Do not offer food tnat contains too much water as this may freeze so hard the birds cannot manage it Sparrows enjoy a vanety of foods Mixtures of grains are suitable Pet supply houses usually have packages made up at reasonable cost Budgie seed may also be used, but this is rather expensive Then there are sunflower seeds, grains, nut meats. bread crackers, rolled oats A combination of seeds, nuts and melted suet and honey made into cakes or put into containers before it hardens is a real luxury good site for a feeding station is a sheltered position one protected from prevailing winds The one I have is a patio shelf surrounded by fibre glass walls and roof, that holds the pots of tuberous begonias during the summer Some of these large con- tainers. filled with earth, are left on the shelf all winter. providing a place for the birds to nestle into and also to take dust baths in the warmth of the sun They are so interesting to observe from the kitchen window This shelf is wide enough and built in such a wa> that it would be difficult for cats to jump on it If there should be a dry period during the winter, a warm saucer of water will help to provide the drink they need In the spring the v-fgp tables are sending up new shoots out of the ground and look vcr> tempting to the birds, it is a good idea to provide food supplies such as they have been getting all winter Their hunger will probabl> be satisfied and less damage to gar dens will orcur Some people have found this works quite well In anv event it is worth a try HOME-0-GRAPH HOME PLANNING SERVICE 40 Jarvis St., Toronto, Ontario MSC 2H1 D I enclose S1 50 (plus 25 cems handling mailing) for "Home Designs for Canadians Book 1 2nd Edition D I enclose 50 (plus 25 cents handling mailing) for "Home Designs for Canadians Book 2 2nd Edition D Please send free brochure showing sample "Home of the Week' designs and other design books available D Please send an order form so that I may order building plans for the design shown above NAME ADDRESS (Plane Print) LETH. Carpentry Corner Building garage can be easy Somebody said that it couldn't be done, but with a chuckle he replied that maybe it couldn't, but he wouldn't say no till he'd tried. We agree with the poet Edgar A Guest: Just tackle the thing that "cannot be and you'll do it. If you've always wanted and needed a two car garage, a new book by Easi-Bild, simplifies doing by telling you how. Anyone who knows the difference between a hammer and a saw should have no dif- ficulty building a two car gar- age if they follow the simplified step by step method of construction outlin- ed in d new 64 page book Easy to follow, step by step direc- tions and over 50 illustrations take all the fear and mystery and more than half the cost out of building All informa- tion required from purchase of materials selecting site, obtaining a building permit, to digging foundation trenches, framing and sheathing is ex- plained and illustrated m the simplest possible manner Best of all. this garage is no skimpv affasr Measuring 20" x it not only provides ample room for two cars, but also accom- modates luxury cars Many families have discovered a two car carage provides living <-pdcr at low cost By converting half into a bedroom a playroom or office at home, they gam 240 square feet of space at very low cost Everyone who takes the list of materials into a lumber yard is agreeably surprised to learn the materials for a two car garage frequently cost less than a one car garage bought ready made With what you save on doing this project yourself, you can buy that boat and trailer von vo always wanted And, of course, the new garage is the perfect place to store it when it'v not in the water Send K for Book No 663 How to Build a Two Car Garage to Lethbndge.
