Satisfactlun In Planning Greater satisfaction comes from planning a home to fit one's family needs, hobbies and special Interests, and it permits self-expression since the owner-planned home can be entirely distinctive, without the made- In-a-mold appearance. Rooms can b« arranged as the family wants and there.Is always the assurance that material and equipment in the custom-built house is exactly as specified. Wall space and floor areas can be planned to fit specific furniture. Ready-Built Advantages The cost of ft mass-produced dwelling Is 15% to 30% less than custom-building of an identica house. The buyer knows what he t> getting before closing the deal, as he can Inspect the finished product In custom-building, n layman often finds the house is entirely different on completion than he expected due to his unfamilarity witr sketches and blueprints. A ready-built home usually Is I complete package, including land scaping, utility connections and ^mechanical equipment.

Then there is always the possibility that the horn will go beyond one's means due tc what seem to be minor change during construction. Coiisultatiou with one's banke and a good architect before dec id ing whether to buy or build is us ually the best procedure.

'Matc/iing' Furniture And Floors Suggested Interior designers say that floor should be In tune wllh Ihe furnish lugs of a home, whether it be ultra modern or of period design. With modern blond or bleachet furniture, a smart floor treatment is achieved with black, dark brown, or dark green asphalt tile, accented with narrow while diagonal stripes three or four feet npart. Dark, heavy furniture calls for pastel floor tones without complicated designs. In an early American setting, a floor laid in random lengths of bluff and light broivii will create Ihe effect of early-day wide plank flooring, blend harmoniously with the period furniture. In a Georgian house, plain un- paUerned floors set off the ornate furnishings, fit the Georgian tradition. Light taupe, beige or other neutral tones are most effective. •/re Losses Up After Declining -or 7 Months Fire prevention experts expressed oiicern today and renewed their ffortti to reduce 'America's fire toll afler the national loss In August flowed a rise following seven siic- •C.S.MVC months of decline from the :arresuondliig months a year ago.

Fire prevention groups ore inslslent that all such spaces bo fire-stopped.

The Homo Insurance Company slutes: "Insulation in walls and ceilings should be the non-inftam- mable, mineral base type such as mineral wool," Built-in Drawers Keep Vegetables Handy and Fresh Utility Room Requires Light, Cheerful Colors A utility room should have plent; of windows with washable curtain In cheerful colors. Walls and floor should be brightly colored, moisture resistant, easy to clean. Washubli paint is the answer for the- walk and moisture-proof asphalt tile in harmonizing or contrasting color I ideal for the floor. To add interest, work out you own floor pattern with asphalt tile arranged in pleasing geometries designs or stripes. Decorate cabinet doors with bright-colored dccalino- inaiilfts. Green and yellow, pink and green, scarlet and robin-egg blue arc nil good color combinations.' Convenient vegetable storage can Iw provided by a built-in bin with sliding drawers, as reported by American Builder magazine. For thorough ventilation, the wood framing of the drawers Is enclosed by small mesh wire or three sides ami the bottom of eacl: drawer. When the plywood door is closed, air circulates through the bin by means of a vent In the counter lop and another vent under the front edge of the lower drawer.'
