BANK .fli 251 Church Street / / 7 Tel. 2279 THESE FIRMS CAN SOLVE YOUR PROBLEMS Fix Up Your Home For Better Living Most houses have a spot where an inexpensive and easy device to provide greater privacy would pay rich dividends. This is particularly true in houses where, to create a feeling of spaciousness or to conserve on building costs, the dining area is in one corner of the living room. The same problem exists in many older houses where the dining room is separated from the living area by an arch or open hallway. The modern solution is one the average home owner can make in his spare time. It is a glass block waist-high partition to separate the nreas without destroying the open planning. Insulux glass block allows daylight to flow through the panel while cutting off floor draft;: s,.nd screening the dining area. The panel shown here is built at right angles to the outside wall. The board on the top of the panel is ten inches wide to provide a convenient shelf for books, vases or bric-a-brac. A prefabricated system for erecting an interior partition without mortar known as the set-in-wood method simplifies the job for the home owner. The three basic parts are provided by the manufacturer, fall into place like parts in a jigsaw puzzle. Ordinary carpenter tools are needed for the job. Horizontal and vertical wood strips between the block and the framing around the panel can be decorated to carry out the color design of the room. While the ease of building a set-in-wood glass block panel appeals to home owners, it is also popular with those who live in rented houses or apartments. The reason is the set-in-wood panel can be removed for use elsewhere, if the lease permits. The functional panel here can be made highly decorative by modern shelves (see insert) to hold plants, prize vases or ornaments that must be kept out of the reach of small children. If the home is ultra-modern, substitute brilliant cord or rope crisscrossed to the ceilinp. Pick up one of the colors in the living room for accent. EASY TO MAKE REFRESHMENT BAH ( OR STAND Need lor a rumpus room usually reaches its zenith as the younger members of the family approach the irrepressible 'teen age. High on the priority list of equipment for a recreation room is a beverage bar—more particularly one that is primarily suitable for dispensing soft drinks and light refreshments. The recreation room bar shown hera is one that can be made by any man who is handy with tools. It is constructed of two materials—glass block and lumber. Set-in-wood, the glass block panel has the advantage of transmitting light to the storage area while concealing whatever is behind the counter. A wipe with a damp cloth will keep it clean. Set-in-wood installations of glass block are economical because they can be dismantled easily and rebuilt in a new location. Prefabricated wood strips and wedges for joining the block are ready for use on the lob NEED A NEW ROOF? After the hard winter you should check your roof — It may need replacing or repair- Ing.
