Whatever it takes to improve your home, and increase its value, the Algona firms named below will join forces to see that you reach your goal! * ... But Where Is The Money coming from? Thai's always an "interesting" question. In the case of home improvement for better living, however, a made- to-order plan for financing — FHA Title I Home Improve* msnl Loans — already exists, and it is thus that home improvement is now one of the most desirable credit pur-' chases that can be made. Your "job", requiring the services of several different firms, and materials from different sources, can all be "lumped" under ONE FHA Title I loan, and payment made to all parties at once by the local lending agency. Then you repay'the loan in monthly payments, to suit your budget, with payments possible up to S years total time. • * Yes, your home comes first . . . why not take advantage of this plan and improve it, bring better living io your family, and make your home "investment" that much greater in value ?

Can Tour Basement Be improved ? Most conventional basements can be made to look just like the one in the photo above .. . and at surprisingly little cost. It ends up as a practical "extra" room for the whole family and guests. In this case, an attractive moisture-laden floor covering was cemented to the concrete slab. Could Your Home Use This Storage Unit ? Here's en under-eave plywood storage unit for attics and ceilings that will eliminate unnecessary clutter. Unit has room for bulk storage in rear, storage of clothes, lin* ens and other items at front. The photo shows types of things that can be put away in unit. Put Kitchen and Dining Alcove Together! A new space-saving trend that also means a far more attractive working and dining setting than most homes have. Kitchen has a "separation" from dining alcove, but flow of traffic is not closed off. And look at how cheery everything in the picture is 1 Like This Truly Handsome Kitchen ? Difficult to have? , . . not at all, and most oldei kitchens lend them-selves easily to this modern arrangement of buili-ins. And through special lighting this kitch-' en has "daylight light", even on darkest days. All the work performed under one FHA Title I loan.
