How to Paint Cinder Blocks Cinder blocks are, so porous that it is belter to give'them a . a coat of cement, stucco or port land cement -paint before paint ing them with a permanent fin . i*. .

'·· HOMES FOR AMERICANS Cooling Cost Cut Sharply By Insulation Proper insulation may decide i( you can or can't afford air conditioning in your home. Here's why: Thick mineral wool in the walls and ceilings tai'id in floors, where needed) blocks the passage- of heat. As a result, an air-conditioning system has less work lo do, since less heat from (he ouU side gels into the house. cash immediately on your. air. conditioning, whether you are building,- remodeling, or simply installing 'cooling .equipment, in your'present hor/ie, because Ihe thick mineral wool per- m/Is'a. smaller'and lest costly system--- as much as 50 percent less -- to cool the-house com- forlably. .· ' . . · H this sounds like you'll be" robbing Peter lo p'ay Paul -- spending more for insulation to save on cooling equipment' -- consider- these 'savings b.uildej-s realized when the ' Air Conditioned Village, in Austin, Tex., was constructed: ' . .

The fences can be built of western red stare.right.into their liying ; rpom. There's a cure.for this condition which offers special relief fo'r owners of a row house; One architect has fashioned attractive paneled fences which are built in separate sections with alternate sections staggered to give additional illusion of depfh. The 'panels are about-'eight :feet or nipre in length. One is installed' directly in front" of the entrance door, but close to the sidewalk line. Others follow along Ihe sidewalk, line. The staggered effect tUfinrtjve and provides a sha- ·'dow.line'effect. -By this method I .Added lo these savings is the I economy of operating the units.' The thick insulation made-it pos- sible.lo heat and cool the houses at an average savings of $107.90 per year. If you are building or planning to build an air-conditioned house, -- .,.,_ ,, .......«.».^ you can realize similar savings courtyard which, thanks to the with proper insulation installed fence, .can even be-used' as j during construction. ' If you are remodeling or simply add'mg_ a'cooling system- to yoiir-preseiit home, mineral wool in the. correct thicknesses for-air conditioning can-be blown pneumatically into existing walls -and ceilings. Similar savings-on equipment : and operation will result-. -. 'Air conditioning engineers- rec- commend a 6-inch thickness : ot mineral wool for ceilings, a minimum of 3 inches-in walls,.- and ZMnches in floors over such areas as 'crawl "spaces, 'all a died .garages, and porches. · · · AVOID' RUSTY TOOLS Drop a piece .of charcoal in your tool box.
