They won't interfere with use of the tool STUCCO In modem building construc- tion stucco may be defined as a mature of cement, sand, hy- drated lime and a sufficient amount of water to produce a workable mix. Sometimes the hydrated lime is omitted, but its presence helps to make the mixture "fat- ter" and in that respect easier to apply, also waterproofs it. While stucco does not make a building fireproof, it gives a large measure of fire protection to a structure that is construct- ed of combustible materials. It also preserves such buildings against rapid depreciation and naturally eliminates the neces- sity for frequent maintenance such as painting and the many common repairs that would be necessary without it many more glorious features.

It's a beautiful kitchen and the oven is 151 high no bend- ing over. Varnish glistens on 17 cup- board doors. The dining room is spacious and is graced with an exquisite glass chandelier. You'll be amazed at the rock, rough tan and light cream-col- ored, of which the living room fireplace is constructed. Check the carpets: rich blue and red with luxurious pile. And note the green glove light in the front hall. It looks like a giant teardrop. You'll see three bedrooms and 114 bath- rooms on the main floor.
