' See if doors and windows , fit properly. Look for defects] in woodwork and plaster. If anything is found not completed or improperly constructed notify your builder in writing. Any items that have not been completed in your new home should be promptly called to the attention of the builder in writing. /t's Important to Inspect Your New Home Before Movingln BUYING a -new home is the verbal statements, rough m e m- largest single investment the average family makes in a lifetime. Because it is such a major event, it is important that an owner be happy and satisfied with his purchase now—but even more importantly, in the future. A good home is built to last, and the builder has had to comply with rigid standards set forth by various building codes and regulations. However, every new home—like an automobile—requires careful "breaking in" by the buyer. A few continuing obligations are the builder's, but in general it's up to me buyer to take over this complicated assembly of materials. Ton should know your new home as well as your automobile, says the National Asssociation of Home Builders. Its long life and your continued comfort are in many ways dependent upon this knowledge. Should any minor repairs, due to poor workmanship or defective materials, be needed in the first few months of occupancy, report them to your builder immediately, the association recommends. Within a reasonable length of time a reputable builder win make the necessary repairs. Home builders do not generally maintain "service departments" and cannot provide personal serv-i ice on a moment's notice, but wi]l| have the plumber, alectrician,' plasterer, etc., take care of. your j legitimate requests. Cooperate with your builder. There are some 3000 component parts in a new home. A general working knowledge of those items is a "must" for every buyer. It will enable the owner to understand more fullly the normal results of heat, cold, humidity, expansion, contraction — conditions which affect every new house, whether the price is $7000 or 570,0000. After taking title to a new home, take time for a complete inspection of the structure before moving into it See that everything has been completed as agreed upon. You will be satisfied, and the builder's contractural obligations will be completed. H Items are discovered that, through an oversight by yourself or the builder, have not been completed, these items should be promptly called to the attention of the builder. It is always best to do this in writing. Telephone calls, dustry, which utilizes the results of constant research for new building materials and design which add to the beauty, quality and durability of new homes. oranda can often go astray. For home building has become i r a large-scale, mass-production industry. The time has passsed when all new homes were o n e-m a n building operations—the "builder" a combination carpenter, mason roofer and jack of all t r c a d e s. Sometimes he was master of none. Today's "merchant builder" is Building Permits Six building permits were 'issued last week by Harry Timberlake Sr., city building inspector. A number of minor repairs permits were also issued. J. C.
