The All-Electric House (ContiTiued from page 4) of the two-story en trance. Push buttons begin their work at the garage door, which opens by remote control from a button in the Wenning car. Lights set in the shrubbery around the house not only create an almost stagelike effect but provide a welcome for guests approaching the house while discouraging strangers. Many of the electrical conveniences are not visible but do a Jot to make for pleasant living. Air conditioning keeps the house comfortable and clean; a stereo system provides music in any room, including the terrace; a communications system with 10 outlets throughout the house is an enormous step saver, allowing Mrs. Wenning to hear when the baby wakes up in the nursery while she's busy in the kitchen or elsewhere. Mr. and Mrs. Wenning can also communicate from different parts of the large 10-room, three-bath house situated on a sloping wooded lot. In spite of its size, the house presents no added problems of care due to its ample electrical aids. Mrs. Wenning does all the housework, takes care of their active two-year-old son, does the marketing and cooking, and still manages to find leisure time days and evenings. A good deal of the ease with which she runs the house is due to organization and planning--and the tireless help of built-in electrical services at her finger tips. In Ihc bedroom wing, (ho GE laundry is conveniently situated between two baths. Singer Slanlomatic 500 is hondy for mending. Mrs. Wenning's sister flicks the switch and a stream of light begins at the entrance, lights the way through the house to a control panel in master bedroom. Vacuum-cleaner outlets are in every room and passage. Here Mrs. Wenning attaches cleaner outside bedrooms. It comes out here! Mr. Wenning empties vacuum dust pan in the garage. It's done every two or three months. Luxtrol dimmers by Superior Electric allow light changes in any part of house. Master controls shown here are in hallway. Family Weekly. April S, I9B2
