About five years ago i put some Ceramic tiles and found it difficult to space them properly. Now i have a similar Job to do and have been told that the easiest Way to do the spacing is to place toothpicks Between the tiles. Is this so a. Toothpick method was fairly common years ago and worked Well but it was a nuisance. Have you purchased the tiles yet you will find that most of them now come with built in spacing lugs known As these automatically do the spacing for you. Q. I have been looking at newspaper ads for room air conditioners and find them rated by the letters Btu. It is obvious to me that the higher the bus the larger the area that can be cooled. But what do the initials Btu stand for a. They mean British Thermal unit. Each unit is equivalent to the Quantity of heat required to raise the temperature of one Pound of water one degree fahrenheit. Don t try to figure it oat. You already have the general idea. Air conditioner dealers have charts which show the coverage expected of the machines based on their British Thermal units. There Are of course other considerations that enter into the Quality of a room air conditioner. Q. We recently signed b contract to buy a House but Haven t closed yet. When we were looking at the House the woman owner said the dining room fixture was a family heirloom and that it did t go with the House but would be replaced by a new one. It sounded All fight to us so we said Okay. On a recent visit to the House to take measurements the change of fixtures already had been made and it looks As though the new fixture came from a five and dime store. What can we do about getting a better fix Ture a. This is a matter for a lawyer. But it illustrates again the necessity of including everything in a sales contract. There should have been a line in the contract declaring that the dining room fixture would be replaced by one of equal monetary value and subject to approval by the purchaser. Q. Do i apply lacquer just As it comes from the can or dilute it with thinner if so How much i will be using a Brush. A. Dilute it 50-50 with lacquer thinner. For Andy Lang s Booklet Wood finishing in the Send 25 cents and a Long stamped self addressed envelope to know How p. 0. Box 477, Huntington n. Y. 11743. Future enjoyment or As an in vestment. Or the site May be needed now for House building. It has never been More important to choose 3 site carefully. Land is getting scarce but because it is still High priced you May not be Able quickly to unload it in this tight Money Market if it does t measure up to your expectations. One couple looked at 12 Sites in the same area before they selected a piece of land for a House to be built sometime in the future. Why did they spend so much time choosing a lot. You May lose a site you like by dallying they explain but in another instance you May be glad you waited to make a decision As they were. They had been considering a lot for a Long time and then they just happened to visit it after a Rainy spell it was a swamp the most important aspect of choosing a site cannot be pin pointed they say. The biggest misery could be poor drainage but solid Rock is another kind of site monster. Blasting can make the Price go skyward. If the land is earmarked for future building buy it As if you Are building on it now they advise. It will help you make a Wise selection whether you use the land or sell it. Here Are some additional pointers offered by these site shoppers is a Highway in the Pic Ture it May have been 10 years in the planning but you May not learn about it unless you query the state Highway com Mission. Consider whether utilities must be brought into the area. Many Odd parcels Are finding their Way to the real estate Market in this land shortage and sometimes you will find a spot that is really a wilderness because it was part of a big acreage that was undeveloped. If you find a lot you like you should ask a builder whether the House can be put where you would like to Bave it. A Long driveway is Lovely but it May be expensive to maintain especially in Winter months. You might decide not to put your House quite so far from the Road if you discuss it. Are there Trees Hills houses to Block Winter winds will you be in line for a sum Mer Breeze determine from which direction breezes come. You Don t want to Bury your House so that you swelter in summer. And you Don t want it sitting on a Hill without any Protection against Winter blasts. Neighbors builders real estate people May be helpful with this information. You might consult local weather forecasters. Building codes and zoning Laws should be investigated. These May change from town to town. Some deeds Are shockers incorporating restrictions that May keep one from building the House he can afford among other things. If you plan to wait a few years before building you might get the architect into the act before you buy the land. He can advise about town codes and local builders. You May be buying the land As an investment but if you Iron out the problems any would be House builder would face you will be secure in the knowledge that the land is Sale Able. Many people buy a piece of land merely because it is there and they can afford it.

Every year or so i find it necessary to shoot holes in the so called Rule of thumb that a Amily can afford a House equal to two and one half times its annual Gross income. The reason for doing it again Tow is the publication of a Booklet which uses this general guide for estimating what a respective purchaser can pay or a Home. While the theory might have lad some Small Merit 20 or 30 years ago it has become Ess and less reliable As an indicator until today it is worthless. Banks and other lending institutions Are Well aware of this and consequently want to know a lot More about a family s financial position than its an Nual income. One family with a Gross in take of might very Well afford a House costing while another with an identical income might not be a Good mortgage risk in the Purchase of a House. The major reason for the inability to use the old yardstick As a guide is the reality thai we Are living in a credit Economy. Whereas a Home owner once owed Money Only on a car he now is trailed by a string of debts that figuratively keeps a close Eye on everything he does. It in t that he has wanted to get into debt. It s just that he lives in a world which expects him to make purchases on credit and which even considers him something of an oddball if he pays Cash for everything. Therefore the big question in appraising his ability to maintain regular monthly mortgage payments on his House is How much is he putting out for other things and since this varies so greatly with individuals and wit families it is impossible to say even As a general Rule tha he can afford a House two an me half times his annual Gross income. Even if theoretically every Amily had the same income the same amount of Money and spent equal sums or both necessities and luxuries it would be impossible to state categorically that each could afford a House of a cer Tain amount. Smith might have in the Bank after making a Down payment of on a House whereas Brown might have to struggle to produce a Down payment of and leave nothing in Reserve for emergencies. Thus Smith would be in a far better position to ii Andle a House than Brown would a House. And since families with the same incomes Don t owe and spend identical amounts due to differing circumstances which May not have anything to do with their proclivity for managing Money it should be Clear that no formula that is based primarily on income can be followed. The truth is that a husband and wife who decide to buy a House should sit Down with a Pencil and a very Large piece of paper and decide How much they can Lay out for a Down payment and How much they can pay monthly then shop for something which both pleases them and is within economic capacity. Surprisingly Many families discover that they can afford a better House than they thought they could before the analysis of their financial position. Times bulletin Van Wert 0., sat., sept.
