The house also has an attic fan and a 1 ventilating' lun in ment. Savings that result Iroin doing one's own repair work add H|> to an Impressive yearly total, often pay for workroom and tools. For those lalenled. with tools, a well- planned workshop Is the most poplar room in the house. Good work calls for good tools nrt working conditions. Usual loc- tion for a workshop is the base- nent, although ii can he placed In attic, garage or even an ' oversized closet. A corner area of 8 by l( Teet is adequate, even for the largest work .such as doors. The workshop need cost no mor than $100, including lools, work b'.Micu arid finishing off the base ment comer.

Safety Needed In Connecting Garage, Home Most convenient location lor the garage is attached to the house with direct access to the living quarters, although this can Vic a dangerous location unless protcctec agninst explosion and fire. Most building codes require thai the wall between, a'house and attached garage .be of fire-resistant construction. This is - usually provided at low cost "by filling the hollow spnce between the walls with mineral wool Insulation which cannot burn and which has been given a fire-retardant rating of one to 1^2 hours by the National Bureau of Standards. 'A self-closing, tight-fitting, metal- clad door Is another essential. Unless the connecting door la kept closed "there is always the danger that gasoline fumes will enter the living quarters and Ignite on reach- Jng a pilot light. A .tight door and l|Vell-ventilated garage will mini' • niize this hazard. Builders Say Skimping on Roof Foolish Builders agree that a sound, weatherproof roof is one of the most Important parts of a house. It is never good judgment, they say, to attempt to economize by using inferior roofing material.*; a little extra money spent heie will puy big dividends over the years. Among the materials frequently recommended for long life and resistance to severe weather anJ'cIE- inaiic conditions are asbestos cement shiiigtes. Made of two noncombustible ingredients, asbestos fibers and portland cement, they are ihimune to rot and decay. In addition to being fireproof, they are unharmed by long exposure to salt air. ice, snow and rain. Asbestos roofing shingles -nay considered a form of reinforced excrete, with the asbestos .fibers serving as the reinforcing agent They are available in a number ol patterns nnd colors. Because of th.'ii attractive lexlurings and deep shadow lines they make roofs o: outstanding beauty. A number of companies n:i\v nri making asbestos shingles of the multiple-unit type. Each shh covers the area of several ordinary shingles. When applied, however they give the appearance of stand ard sized shingles Individually laid Asbestos shingles can be. used on lew roofs or for re-roofing over ol shingles. Vapor Barrier Protects Paint From Moisture Too nuicli moisture inside a house sometimes causes paint on the outside to blister and peel, according to American Builder magazine. The explanation Is that moisture penetrates the waits and ts trapped behind the layer of paint Then the colder outside air condenses the moisture into drops of water which push the paint out to form blisters American Builder, building magazine, snys the way to prevent this kind of condensation is to lower humidity by ventilating the house Billy the Kid .most notorious out law of the old west, is buried nea Fort Sumner, New Mexico. thoroughly or to install a vapor bar rier within the walls. Problems caused by high humic ity are found more frequently 1 modern houses than In older dwel ings. The reason for this is tha modern houses are constructed nior tightly and have few, U any, crack through which moisture can escape. Ed Real Estate Transfers Clilckasnn-bn District) H.
