COURIER NEWS TUESDAY, OCTOBER 2, 1951 Homebudder's Dollar Is Wont/i More Today Families buying or building homes today receive greater value lor their building dollars than ever before, according to appraisers and mortgage lenders. Houses generally are of better design find construction, have a longer potential life and contain more conveniences, say these experts. New materials have been developed, old stand-bys improved and new uses discovered. Advances have beeti made Iti architectural design and engineering. Lcgnl requirements for sound construction have heeti widely adopted. Construction techniques have been Improved. Stronger, longer-lasting houses are being produced by such construction techniques and materials as these: heavy, poured concrete . foundations instead of stone or brick: studs, Joists and rafters spaced 16" apart instead of 24" or more, fully-sheathed strtewalls and roofs; fire-resistant roofing: double floors, and finish flooring which will last the lifetime of any house; rustproof copper and brass plumbing; non-warp doors; and fire-resistant plaster u rod nets and paint. More Beautiful Homes Koines nho are more beau Mini, Architectural lines are more pleas come almost a must. Bathrooms are vertible rainbows with colored fixture?, walls and floors. Kitchens have lost their clinical whiteness with walls, cabinets, and even sonic oT the mechanical equipment Included in the color plan. Other rooms receive pleasing color treatment for floors, as well as walls and trim, by creating colorful, Individualized floor designs. Great advances have been made ' In comfort and conveniences In the •1951 home". Automatic heating, controlled by a linker's touch; complete thermal Insulation; certain forms of atr-conditloniner;~ft vast army of electrical equipment; commodious storage space and sliding door clos- rU; and improved plumbing all add to th« Usability of modern house*. Utility Room Can Replace A Basement Government liomliiK experts estimate that constructing a small house without basement, resting It on a concrete slab foundation, saves between 5% and 10% In the cost of a small dwelling. When a basement Is eliminated, provision must be made Jor Ihe heating, laundry and other utility equipment and storage space normally located In the basement. To meet this need, architects developed the utility room, usually connected with the kitchen and having; an outside entrance. In most floor plans, the utility room serves as a rear or side entry to the house. Because much of the work carried on in the utility room is .„ „., .... ..„.„ ,..„.„. closely allied with the kitchen, a ing; scientific color-styling has be-' '"ellng .of greater space Is effected f tho U r o rooms are separated by a low storage wall or counter and ! walls and floors of both rooms are of the sa/ne coloring. The minimum space lor an adequate utility room Is 120 to 140 square feet. Storage space and equipment should be arranged to jtlllze every Inch of floor and wall U'ea. • Compact oil and gas-fired furnaces have been devised especially lor utility room Installation. Some types can be suspended from the wall so that a washing machine can be placed underneath the furnace to save space. For most economical construction, utility room plumbing should be Installed so that It backs up with kitchen piping, thus enabling one drain to serve both rooms and reducing the length of runs of supply pipes.
