Arid they solved it by their own ingenuity. : ' ' In fact, so successful has .their venture been, that they receive visitors nearly every day who 1 are interested'in finding out how they did it, with the thought of doing likewise themselves. The >Fonon couple is Mr. and Mrs. Gerald Voigt. Mrs. Voigt is the former George Anne Geigel, daughter of Mr and Mrs. Fred Geigel of Algona. : Wanted Home—Got One. Married four years ago, the young couple began thinking' about a home of their own at onc^, and in 1944, war or no war, they solved their problem. With a corner, home site in Fenton, they received approval of the FHA after- a month of dickering, to put in a basement for their future home. They began building the basement in Novem- •ber of 1944 and it was completed in 'May, 1945. And then they moved :irt. It was as simple as that! The 'basement is 35x24, with cement floor. The laundry tubs were installed and then converted into a sink. A coal burning heater provides the heat. Lavatory facilities (were figured in on the basement construction. Cost About $1,500. Gerald Voight, 30, employed by the Fenton Cooperative Creamery keeps a good set of figures, anc can tell almost to the penny how much the home has cost thus tin- He places a round figure of $1,50( as the cost of construction, no, counting the lot of shrubs. His wife, teaches band, English and music in the Fenton schools has decorated the walls will Christmas cards, placed cUrtaii partitions which provide hanffa space in'lieu of a closet, and he husband is completing the placin of insulating board ,along the base ment ceiling, ";.,/-.:.
