The Choicest Product of the Brewers' Art Strength of Frame Must ' Be Considered in Choosing New Roof. Hoof coverings vary about as much as any other item of building. Tire main types are the paper, impregnated, slate-covered shingles hi strips or In single units; wood shingles, composition shingles cement tiles, terra-cotta tiles, metal shingles, sheet metal, and slate. OM roofs may be renewed or replaced with funds procured from private sources under the Modernization Credit plan of the Federal Housing Administration. In building a new house, the type of covering is selected and the roof structure built accordingly. Most roofs require a deck or sheathing lo which to fasten the covering bill In some areas, particularly near the sea, wood shingles should be placed over shingle lath, us the un- •lerskle of the shingles must be mowed to "breathe" on account of the excessive dampness In Ihc air- otherwise they will rot. with all types of covering,'except the lm )>or and ivood shingles, heavy rooting felt should be placed over the dcck- "ig before tlie covering Is put on Of course, there Is a great difference In weight among some of ihesc materials, and the roof frame must be figured to carry the load placed upon it. for Instance, 2 Inch by C inch rafters may be all right for wood shingles on n certain house «'Wle 2 inch by a Inch rafters or even 2 inch by 10 Inch rafters might be needed for tile or slate in renewing an old roof, this ™' ler °[ wcl e»t nnisl have careful sidy, if the old roof Is of wood shingles, it may be possible to cover h,,i ? t ., rCm ° VI " g thc shingles, el eekM ?

Housing Question Box Q. We' are about lo do some remodeling of' nn old colonial house, and I want lo know if it would be appropriate lo Imve plaster arches between the hull and "the other rooms nnd between tlie li.ying room ami den. A.. -If you wish to preserve the character of the house, such openings would be quite Inappropriate. Colonial houses had ; doors on all openings to keep thc heat in thc room from escaping, u yoti want arches into the the hall, make them ns, smnll as possible nnd IHm them with wood. This would not be so Incongruous as plaster arches. In such remodeling work the services of an architect should be used. His experience nnd training will be Invaluable. Q. Is it better to build the garage attached lo the house or separate? A. If it can be located where it docs not obstruct necessary H»hl and nir, it is better to built It as a part of the house. Separate garages cut up Ihe yard and make it difficult to develop any scheme of yard layout. An attached garage is more convenient and often improves the architectural appearance of the house, placing thc garage at the back of the lot is merely a habit Inherited from the days of horses and carriages. Q. Is it safe lo paint the outside of 11. house"nt this lime of year? A. It is a hit risky, ns paint should not be applied In damp weather -nor when It Is extremely cold.. If a dry, fairly moderate spell comes along, you might tnkc advantage -of it. . Q. Wo nre going to Install a new bathroom' in our house, and I should like to know If there Isn't some wny to prevent Hint'unsightly crnck that always occurs where the piaster meets the tub. A. Yes; there is. Have the contractor screw n small steel angle of metal about, one-eighth Inch thick to the studs where thc tub comes against the wall, and hang the tub on that instead of on n wooden bracket, as is usually done. Use wire lath : for thc plaster and let the lath overlap the angle. The plaster should be Keene's cement. Q. What Is the best type celling light for a dining room? A. That is largely a matter of choice. However, the tendency Is away from the old umbrella type that hangs Just over the table. A Einnll cluster at the ceiling serves for general illumination, or the center light may te eliminated entirely nnd cnndlcs used on the table Candle light is pleasant and kind and is used extensively.
