With their own rough sketches, they consulted Elead Wegner, local contractor. Wegner took their ideas and plans and his draftsman. Bill Cummings, incorporated them into an engineered plan of his own. This service and estimate of cost by Wegner were completely free of charge and without obliga- • • • Jion. The plans turned out just right for the Bpdes. The nexl step was deciding how to build the house. Since Roland is quite a handyman as well as his wife, the two wanted to do some of the work themselves. This was satisfactory with Wegner because he's willing to do ajl or part of the construction of a house. W egner will either sublet contracts himseli or let the home pwner dp the subletting. This is a practical and economical method for those who have "do it yourself" talents. The Bodes did much of the interior work including putting up the plasterboard and paneling, paint ing the walls and finishing the paneling. Roland also put on the shingles and painted the outside of the house. There are still minor items to be completed- but the Bodes are very happy and satisfied with 4heir new home. (Incidentally, the Bodes' plans were so well liked by others- that there is now a new house going up in Fort Podge with their same plans.) It takes time to map out entire plans and organize for construction, so if any of you are planning on building this spring, now is the time to get started.

VIA THE MILWAUKEE ROAD- 'NO. 11 OF A SERIES' Mrs Roland Bode, A! gona Farm Wife, Enjoys New Convenience With Caloric Buiif-lns To Mrs Roland Bode, the/new Caloric built-in gas cooking units are the biggest luxury at the practical level of all thal/s new in the'.r recently completed farm home northwest of Algona. The built-ins were a big step from in a old combination cook stove. And Mr? Bode hasn t lost any time finding new and differ sni methods of preparing f 0 o d in the five months she has been using them. The broiler, of course, was new to Mrs Bode. She recalls how one night she was preparing bacon and eggs for several guests."Naturally this called for lots of toast, Smce it would take so long in a, toaster, she thought of putting some slices of bread in the broiler. It held 10 slices. The toast was .done in plenty of time to be served along with bacon and eggs. The automatic timer on the oven was a new feature for Mrs Bode, loo. She and the oldest daughter, Susan, 10, enjoy using this. The Caloric units, pictured above, with Mrs Bode are a satin chrom 9 finish; "Caloric was our choice," says Mrs Bode, "because we have been using Thernwnas boltle gas for a long time and we like the way their service men and the company staff have taken care of us. We found out by talk* mg with them that the bunt-ins are no more expensive than .a regular range . , . in toot purs was a little less than some ranges which we compared. 'Caloric built-ins have just the right amount of convenience features for the most practical and economical cooking of all."
