Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 6, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THf LETKBRIDGE HERALD Tundoy, Octofatr 6, 1970 Cresthomes Construction Enters A Classy Home Cresthomes Creates Credibility You'll be standing on the cor- ner, watching all the beautiful homes go by at the 1970 Leth- bridge parade of show homes. And on the corner of Sylvan Road and Glacier Drive you'll see a really neat number, 1305 w H e r e Cresthomes. Construc- tion Ltd. has come up this year with a dan-dandy! The house, the yard, the lo- cation it's extraordinary I There's not one element in this compact picture of perfect de- sign that's a half a foot out of place. Seeing is believing so note Cooling Tips Outlined Shade and ventilation are the secrets of a cool house. Your largest glass exposure should face south and be protected from the sun by a well-engi- neered roof overhang. Trees, screens, awnings, shutters and, to a lesser extent, Venetian bunds and shades will give pro- tection from the sun. A shady garden and roofed patio, louvered screens that permit ventilation without sun- light, grass instead of heat- reflecting concrete will make you cooler. Design your house to keep heat out, cool in: choose a light-color roof that will re- flect heat; good insulation and vapor barriers; a ventilated attic with a fan to remove the 150F air trapped under the roof. Adjust your furnace fan to blow cool basement air up- stairs; keep the house shut in the day, open at night; circu- late the'air with room fans. If the humidity .is high, you will feel copier if you run a de- humidifier. Those who are accustomed to air-conditioned offices and stores may want air condition- ing at home at least for sleeping. Most expensive is cen- tral air conditioning, but for those who have nonducted heating, or rent, or don't want a closed-up home, the solution may be room air conditioners. These Will cool, clean and de- humidify the air. The size of the machine depends on the area, the windows, outside heat, the type of activity and num- ber of people. Conditioners can be perma- nently installed in wall 'or win- dow or be portable. Many plug into an ordinary outlet. They must vent to the outside so heat' and moisture leave the house. Some units bring in fresh air, some remove stale air, somfe heat as well as cool. They have filters that remove dust, and in some cases bacteria, from the air. Be sure you know how often filters should be cleaned or replaced. that pure white random rubble on the exterior, the front cement steps neatly fitted into a corner of the con- struction. Take a look at that smashing roof! And then; thank your lucky stars for an j archi- tect who did his homework. All in all, it's a compact, smart design and we really like the space. Yes the space. Space to 'live, space to breath, space to have fun. Between the garage: It's more than a breezeway it's an entire room! Walk three steps up to the utility room, three more to the kitchen. That pure White Chemstone (precast concrete) has been used to fine advantage on the fireplace in the living room. Random nibble on the outside and random ashlar on the fire- place. It's tte first time we've seen it. It could start an in- terior design trend. In the kitchen you'll discover golden ash finished cupboards, and turn around. There's a smart touch an entrance room divider enhancing both areas rath its golden plexiglass panels, framed in warm tones with arches at the top. This house contains long smart rooms and is divided by a long hall giving access to bedrooms galore. The. basement is unfinished. Cresthomes Construction Ltd. will catch a lot of admiring glances at this year's show. And we're inclined to think architect and builder will de- serve every one. of them.
