Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 14, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta HOME OF THE WEEK OPTIOWA.U. GARAGE I CAR. 2. CAE 20 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, September 14, 1973 31 for trouble spots before winter Check your brickwork now This week's home has prov- ed to be the most popular presented for many years. It is a spacious three bedroom ranch design, but careful attention has befn paid to cost Its plan is as near to a simple economical rectangle as possible but still avoids a small "boxy" impression. A long gable roof is economical to build and enhances the im- pression of length An extra washroom is accessible from master bedroom, rear entrance, kitchen and basement The centre hall plan gives the straight- through access from front door to kitchen which so many homemakers prefer. Plans provide for an optional living room fireplace, one or two car garage and alternative con- struction with frame exterior. The design is suitable for any type of heating. By MR. FIX People who specify brick when they are house hunting or planning to build a home generally are interested in the fact that brick requires less maintenance than wood. But no home, even brick, is maintenance free. While you will not have to paint your house as often this doesn't mean that you can ignore the place. Trim will need painting just as it does on any house and it will have to be done with great care to avoid splashing paint on the brick. Use plenty of drop cloths and work carefully Use regular trim colors and if the trim is white, use a white designed for trim use. not a regular white house paint Ordinary house paint chalks. Use a non-chalking white to avoid stains on the brick. (So-called self-cleaning paints are paints that chalk.) One problem you should be aware of is crumbling mortar. Brick walls and brick foun- dations oi wood houses should be checked for mortar joints that are starting to crumble. Neglect will-cause damp spots on indoor walls Use a screwdriver to probe mortar joints for loose material. Remove loose mor- tar with a hammer and chisel, leaving sound areas alone. Clean out fragments with a wire brush Repairing mortar joints, un- like painting, can be done a lit- tle at a time Use a prepared mortar mix and mix only what you will use in a short time The mix comes in dry form- and water is added. Before you do any mixing, hose down the surface so that it is completely wet. If you apply fresh mortar to a dry surface it will dry too quickly and crumble. If this happens clean out the joint and start again Remember to wet it down this time. Apply fresh mortar with a pointing trowel Use the end of the trowel to indent the rnor- tar slightly while it is still CHISEL OUT LOOSE MORTAR APPLY FRESH MORTAR WITH, TROWEL WET SURFACE TO BE RE PAIRED -TI REMOVE LOOSE STEP BRICKS---THEN MAKE REPAIRS 4Q--4- Design No. R3-1040. i362Sq.

In Arizona, highway clean- ing crews couldn't keep pace with htterers until roadside signs were changed a few vears ago. Belore them, anti- htter posters read. "Deposit litter ahead 'i mile." Many motorists took the signs literally, and scattered gar- bage over the next quarter- mile The roads are much cleaner, officials say, since the signs were reworded- "Litter container mile."

BRANN Until recently, when a fami- ly outgrew it's house, they looked for a larger one as quickly as they could afford it With inflation spirahng home costs sky high, a lot of people are staying put.

Please write the address as printed. fresh. This not only looks better, it helps shed water. Keep water and rags handy to wipe off mortar that gets smeared on the brick. Keep new mortar joints wet tor several days Adjust the hose for a fine spray. Brick steps are another place where trouble can start. If the mortar joint has been allowed to deteriorate too much there can be damage because of the weight on the steps. This will result in loose bricks, even cracking. Slight wear requires only the treatment described above. But if you find bricks that are wobbling or breaking, then other methods are in order away the mortar so that you can remove the brick Clean oft the rest of the mor- tar, both from the steps and from the brick you have removed Set the brick in a pail of water to soak. Except lor the side that will show, cover the brick all around with mortar and set in place Finish filling the joints with mortar. After the brick has had a chance to stand for a time, smooth the mortar joint Keep wet lor several days. Do not allow the repaired area of the steps to be used for several days or until you are sure the new brick is soundly set (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.)

This perennial has the habit of encroaching on neighbouring plants, but can be kept within bounds by plac- ing an edging around it or growing it in a bottomless tub.
