PAQ1 TEN •LVTHEVIU-B (ARK.) COURIER NEW! TUESDAY, BBCEMBMl I, Wall Construction Important to Home Th« prospective home buyer or*builder should always look closely »t wall construction because It is one of the four principal elements In determining whether a structure U well-built. The others are foundation, doors and roof. There are 3 basic wall types: wood frame, masonry veneer over frame. and solid masonry. They are used .singly and in combination. Frame walls are mast widely used because 'Su//mess in Home Often A Fault of Heating System During the heating season,just the proper degree ••stuffiness" is always a problem in man comiort is dependent upon the paper and then siding. Good Lumber Urged Well-seasoned lumber should be used and the wall should be as rigid as possible. Unseasoned materials will shrink and cause cracKi. Studs ol 2" x 4" material should be spaced no further apart than 16". center la center, and secured at the top by two 2x 4's nailed together as A plate to support joisls for the second floor or rafiers for the root. Each crner shuld be braced oy nailing 1 x 1's or 2 x 4's diagonally across the studs. Sheathing may be boards, plywood or rigid liber board nailed to the outside edge of the studs. If boards are used they should be placed diagonally for added rigidity. Choice of siding depends on desired design effect. Materials include: wood clapboards, wood shingles, composition shingles,' or metal shingles or clapboards. Veneer walls are merely one course of brick, stone or stucco applied lo the outside of the sheath- Ing. Need Flreslopplnj Hollow walls must be firestopped to prevent .spread of flames through these natural flues. This is done by placing short IcngUis ot lumber or gypsum block between the studs or by filling the space with fireproof insulation. In a house of average construction there is only an in ch or so of lath and plaster and about the same thickness ot sheathing am: siding between the living quarters and the outside temperature. Hence the hollow space should be insu'.at ed to retain heat in winter and ex elude it in summer. Thin is bes' done by fastening batts or blanket ol fibrous insulating material be t-ween the studs as the house soe \ip. In existing houses npdulatei insulation may be blown Into wa' space* to provide the necessary pro tection. Four Methods Avallafolr For example, four methods of may result. heating a home are available with steam or hot water systems—radiant panels, which use coils scaled in the floors, walls or ceilings; baseboards, essentially a new develop-j me tit in cons'cctor hen Ling; cast iron radiators, and conveclor-radl- a tors. Of the four, convcclor-radialor.<s, icating experts say, provide just. lx)iit the right amount of air'cir- ulation for maximum com tort. ,s the heating medium—steam or ot water—heals the copper or alu- runmn element within the convec- or it, in (.urn, heats Hie air. The varm air rises and is sent out into he room through a grille at the top if the eom'cctor. In turn, cooler tnorline air i.s drawn into the unit hrough a lower opening by natural convection nnd ft gentle cycle i.s set ip which keeps the room air in' motion in Just the right degree to iuaranlce healthful comfort. I'anel Heating an Offender Although wide attention has been given to radiant pane) heating dur- ng the past few years it i.s strange- y enough, one of the greatest offenders in proper air circulation. This has been,best Illustrated in vooins in which there Is considerable smoking by the occupants. Within a short Lime the room Is flooded with layer upon layer of smoke, and the air becomes heavy and unpleasant. Cast-iron radiators likewise arc poor asr circulators, aside Irons their slowness lo heat and cool and their generally old-fashioned appearance In comparison with modern unil.s. With baseboards there is some air circulation but the amount of '-air movement Is not as great as will a convector.

Drying Process Gives Hardwood More Strength Although hardwood flooring has he<jn used for ceminies, the material a.s \ve know it tocjny can be classified n.5 A modern product.
