Clear Lake Globe-Gazette Knotty Pine Bedrooms Made J in Home as Part of Hobby ' Woodworking is a hobby with Sterle Crandall, 711 10th N.

There's a builtin clothes closet at each end of the bunk with linen closets on top of them. The clothes closets are 6 feet high while 2 chests of drawers have been fitted under the bunk. A builtin shelf is out of view in the bunk as is a fluorescent tube light. The ceiling is covered with nu-wood and an indirect light installed. The room was papered with cowboy paper. A 4-drawer chest of drawers adorns one side-of the room next to a home-made book shelf. Crandall tore out a section of the wall YOUR FARM toeS^lH *%i" to make a new entrance to the room. The old doorway, which was situated in about the middle of the bunk, was plastered over and a mirror and bookcase fitted on the other side which is in the living room of the house. The 2nd bedroom features cabinets across the length of the front. They are floor length, with a chest of drawers on one side and a vanity table in the middle. Crandall has also remodeled the living room of the home, 1 built an inside stairway to the basement and hopes to erect a garage with "hobby time" in the future. Poor Heating System Sends Money up Flue A heating system should be regarded as an investment the same as a home of an automobile, declare specialists at the University of Illinois' Small Homes Council. The real cost of a heating system is not just the cost of the original equipment, they say, but is equal to the initial cost plus the maintenance and fuel, costs. A "cheap" heating system will surely cost more in the end than one properly designed and installed. Select up-to-date equipment, heating experts advise. An investment in a modern heating plant and modern room heating units, such as the new convector-radiators, will insure comfortable warmth without high maintenance costs for many heating seasons. New Tricks in Solving That Storage Space is a big problem in mod- ern'life. Where to put it seems to be the number one question in Clear Lake Briefs Star club will hold their annual picnic for families at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Howard Hansen Friday at 6:30.

One way to get around the FOR QUALITY, SERVICE AND SATISFACTION space problem is to use storage areas more wisely. It is amazing how much room will appear in even the tiniest apartment if it is all put to good use. Take closets, for example. What's wrong with a double- decker arrangement for skirts and suits? A 2-tiered closet means twice as much room and clothes won't have to be put away mussed up in musty bureau drawers. The inside of a closet door can be a wonderful place for storing things. Add a f<nv pegs here, a narrow boxed-in shelf there, and presto! the door is transformed into a cabinet for odds and ends. It's good for hanging sewing equipment or household tools, too. Shelves can be added in all sorts of strange places, and look very well there, too. Over a door, for example, or around beds. But double duty furniture — furniture that serves 2 purposes at once — is the best answer yet to the storage problem. Mr. and Mrs. chests, extension tables, step table radios and countless other double duty items mean real space saving and more comfortable modern living.
