Are Being Erected 'By the Thousands' Home builders say the "economy : hoiiie" Is here. Despite the )x>p;ilar belief that postwar building costs have priced i Die "little man" out of the market, '.the building industry has been able to,produce minimum-type dwellings that sell in tlie south and southwest for as little as $100 down and K9 per month. In northern states sucli housing prices lange slightly higher. A survey of low-cost homes conducted by the National Association of Home" Builders 'shows thousands of "economy houses" being erected. They arc described as comfortable, (Durable housing for families of modest means. Builders, according to Carl G. Lans, technical service director of that association, arc striving to .get good housing on the market at. cosls substantially below (he general prices of homes. ''Contrary to common opinion," Lans points out, "thousands of homes are being buill anil sold, including the Inrol, lov M.5IKI to $1.900. They range in type from the Uvo- bedroom house—simple, unpretentious, but nevertheless including all the'necessities ol comfort and safety, sanitation and structural soundness—to the three-bedroom houso fully equipped with Die latest accommodations, .snch as automatic washers, electric range, hot water heater ami aulomlte healing plant." The key to mast of the ojxralions lies in ma.s-s production, site-fabri- caiion of'wall sections find roof trusses ami substitutions of less costly material.
