Laundry Room Off Kitchen Is Convenient Laundry rooms are being placed off Ihe kilchen ralher lhaii in Ihe basements of many modern homes. Attractive color schemes and gay decorations make them valuable as additional working space. Such <[iiarlers afford play room for children on bad days, and, in addition, Hie family sewing antl mending cnn be done there without taking the housewife far away from the kitchen when there Is anything that needs to be watched there. When the family is entertaining, (he additional (able surface afforded by a convenient laundry room provides space for the preparation or storage of dishes. However, where lack of space compels the use of the basement for a laundry room, a cheerful place can be created. Financing of home modernization and repairs may be accomplished under the Properly Improvement Credit Plan of the Federal Housing Adniinlslration. Batiks or other private finance in- sliliilions extend the funds and are Insured by the Federal Housing Administration against loss. Temperature Important To Building Life Structural and other wooden members In u building may become unsound if subjected lo alternate wet and dry conditions. For example, the ends of joisls embedded. |u masonry foundalion wall may become unsound if the walls of the basement nre dump and poorly ventilated. Similar damage to other parts of the building may occur as a result of a leak In Ihe roof or enves. loosened or deteriorated flushing, improperly constructed or unpaiiit- cd windows, antl the like. The wood may be tcslctl by Jabbing it with Hie point of a Jackknife. If it is soft and spongy, or very brittle, it is likely thai slruc- lural reinforcements are necessary. Badly deteriorated parls should be replaced, and Hie basement of the building should be kepi proj>erly ventilated to prevent further deterioration. Improvements of this nnliire may be financed under Ihe Properly Improvement Credit Plan of tlie Federal Housing Administration.
