TUESDAY, APRIL ?S, 1990 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWi PAOB Many Vets to Buy Homes During 1950 ™ Nineteen percent of the thousands of war veterans who have not yei bought their own homes will do 10 this year, announced the Construction Research Bureau, national clearing house for building Information, after surveying plans for ute 'of or insurance refund money which will add $2,800,000,000 to personal Incomes by mid-year. About 40,000 applications per month are now being made for GI home loans, In contrast to a low of 20,500 in March, 1949, Two outstanding reasons for the great increases are: better home values now offered, and outlook for continued prosperity. If m vet buys a new house, giiar-* anteed by the government, he can be virtually assured of getting good house that meets all local ordinances and PHA requirements. Even higher standards are often observed by conscientious builders. Test Soundness Solid construction Is essential and the home-buyer can do a hop, skip and jump on the floors of the house, to be sure they are solid. If the house vibrates, shakes or sags, beware. A house-shopper should visit.any home - he Is considering several times before making a final decision. The house should be Inspected at least once on a rainy day. A leaky cellar should b* the signal for a quick exit. A leaky roof shows a weakness wich needs Immediate investigation and possibly expensive repairs. A guarantee of a well-built house Is assured If It is well-insulated with full-thick mineral wool. FHA Igttl not guarantee a loan unless In- flpiation specifications are observed ~c3omfort, economy and lower upkeep costs are among the reasons for this. A house insulated .with mineral wool. will be up to 15 degrees cooler In summer and will save 30% or more on fuel. A les expensive and less . fuel-consuming heating plant may be installed and longer lift for the equipment assured because of the lesser load on it. • - •' Ma5or Installations Plumbing, heating and wiring are major installations that should be checked before the vet buys a If water drains too slowly from the tub or sink, plumbing pipes may be tod small. If plumbing-Is noisy. It may be improperly vented. Low ' _ pressure may indicate that service line to the house is too small. Auto- t matlc types of heating units are preferable to hand-fired. A too- small furnace will have to be op erated at an Inefficient • overload Exposed pipes should be insulated; chimney and fireplaces should be --separate from the house structure, •toere should be a sufficient number iCf electrical outlets in all rooms for lamps and other appliances; in the kitchen for refrigerator, range and other major appliances. Flooring, roofing, window and door Installations; hardware, wall finish both inside and outside; construction revealed in an-unfinished • ttlc, are other points to be checked.

Tiie knotty pine is used for he fireplace wall in the living room nd throughout the den. A dutch door opens from the entrance hall nto the den. A three-foot wains- oating of knotty pine Is featured n the inside hall, In which a disappearing stairway to the attic also is located. Closets in the inside hall and .lie guest room are cedar lined. Flooring is of random-width, ranch styled pegged walnut. "L" and "H" ,ype hinges on kitchen cabinets and other hardware throughout ;he house carry out the colonial- ranch style design. The fireplace hearth and fac- ng is of crab orchard stone. The house has insulated walls and ceiling and is heated by a forced air heating unit. The heating unit is located in a combination furnace and tool room off the carport. new home Balanced Insulation' For Home Suggested 'Balanced insulation" is a term coming into use by builders. It refers to the distribution of insulation over all wall am roof areas which are directly posed to. the weather, as contrasted to the concentration of . Insulating material in the upper part of th< house. Balanced insulation, according t< heating engineers, has these advantages:- more uniform heating from floor to ceiling, greater fuel saving, fewer drafts and Inceased rcomfort. The latter'Is accounted for by. the fact that when the walls are warm less heat Is radiated from the body. An economical way to build in "balanced insulation," builders report, is to use Insulating board sheathing In place of an ordinary sheating material. whether the heating system Is of hot-air, hot-water, steam or radiant type, and fired by oil, ooal. gas or electricity, now at the eiid of the heating season is the time to put it In shape for maximum efficiency and minimum expense next winter. Worn-out parts should be replaced; dampers and valves put in working order; fuel-combustion efficiency checked; ' Insulation oi furnace, pipes and .ducts Inspected; cleaning and lubrication done carefully. It is advisable. to have a service technician inspect the plant and make any necessary adjustments. The cleaning may be handled by him or b ythe home-owner. Ash-pit, smoke-hood : and smoke- pipe must be cleaned out to lemove ash and soot, if coal L-s used. If the furnace is not cleaned of these de< posits yearly, the accumulated deposit slows up trie heating action. Flues of a steam or hot-water heating plant can be cleaned with a long-handled stiff wire brush Air-ducts of a hot-air;. furna'ci should be cleaned to insure unllom heat.

Build shallow wall cabinets along one wall for storage of car equipment, outdoor :ools and games. Extend these cabinets from floor to celling. High on the opposite wall, provide additional cabinets or shelves so that furniture can be placed under them to save floor space. Sliding doors save space, make the cupboard Interiors easy to reach even when the car Is in the garage.
