COURIER NEWS ' PAGE NINE •i- ^ i ity Cuts Cost of Building Many Ways fo Lower Construction Price And Retain Quality Of the many dollar-stretchers available when building or remodeling. here are some often-overlooked ways to cut costs without cutting construction quality, according to jy*oyal Barry Wills, architect, and ^Jhe Construction Research Bureau, tion''' ng h ° U5 ° '"'' builcjlng '"forma- A square house or room costs Jess than a rectangular one with the same amount of floor space. A plain roof without dormers is least expensive, carry the walls up three or four feet, give the roof less pitch, place short windows beneath the eaves for light and ventilation and eliminate th expensive dormers. Concrete or cinder blocks cost Bay Window Also Provides Added Space Savings A bay-window In the living-room can serve as R n attractive and convenient space-.saver. Build into it a sill-height closed cabinet whose front Is Mush with the wall on either sine of the bay. The lop of the cabinet, being fill-height, will serve admirably as a sideboard or bullet table, while In tlie closed cabinet may be stored glassware, duties and table linens. Near the bay, place a trestle table, rectangular library table or droplcf table which can be used for dining, yet will double for sitting- room purposes between meals. This may be further enhanced by installing plain glass shelves across the windows. On these, glassware interspersed with green growing plants and vines may be displayed. In a dual-pur|xxse room, a one-room apartment, or any room where snace is H a premium, this use of a bay- window provides simultaneously for storage, meal service, growing plants t Et.sic Oliver and S.

One great advantage of installing mineral wool during construction Is that between 23"r and W, can be saved on the heating plant installation. This is because a house insulated with full-thick mineral wool In exposed walls and attics requires a smaller heating plant. Plasterboard Economical Areaways around cellar windows than ready-made devices. sheets of plasterboard or . site of 1 the wo-ld's largest telescope. superfluous moldings and trim. The house looks better without these and savings are important. Costs can be cut by omitting a porch if a terrace will serve as well. If n roof is desired In summer, use an awning over the terrace. A plain cement floor marked off in squares costs less than brick. Bay windows cost money, but if a bay window Is wanted an oriel window is cheaper since it requires no foundation.

Bullt-lm AH Usable With Period Room Sty I* Bullt-lns need not be confined to modern interiors and the Early American room can also take advantage of their usefulness. Before a single or double window In one end of a Colonial living-room, Place a sofa. Instead of lamjMa- bles. build lir at either end of the sofa a table-height cabinet with simple batten door. In either corner, at right angle* to the sofa and cabinet-tables, build open shelves to the celling, over cloted storage cupboards. On the sofa use a ruffled printed chintz or other colon slipcover. Have simple draw-curtains at the windows, of the same material. All the built-Ins may be left In their natural finish, and waxed to a toft glow.

Initials Replace 'Hit' And 'Hers' on Linens Once the words "his" and "hers" on bathroom linens was a clever thought but the Idei Is about worn out. Accomplish the same result and include the children, by employing Initials on towels and wash cloths for Identification.
