I Heaton's Homo of Flowers, seri- <}usly damaged in a fire Jan. 30, its now larger and more modern, following completion of a rebuilding program. 1 A new 40 by 44-foot building, two :itorics high, has replaced the unit destroyed by fire, which also caused a heavy loss to the stock of flowers and plants. The build ing, which has exterior walls oi insulated brick siding, is ..reeled adjoining the three green ..uuscs on the North to the alley. The display room, office, work .shop, packing shed and furnace loom, which burned, were replace:! and added were an office fur !•:. J.

Design, Plan and Construe- Of Average Small Home Bettered The careful buyer of today Is in- .<!--ing that the .small house be its aiiractive, efficient, livable, and disrnbio as more expensive homes. .VIany and sometimes all of these factors have been neglected in the building c!' small homes in the past. The Federal Housing Administration has done much to elevate ••,!!• design, plan, and construction o! the small home, since to be ac- .''."i^tible as s(.-::u;-ity for an insured | mortgage the .small house must ! meet the FHA's minimum stand- ards of construction. Small homes have rarely had the i advantage of competent arehitec- I tural services, FHA officials point cut, and for many years past it has been the general practice to build the small single-family dwelling with little thought oi usefulness und livability over a long time to come. The FHA's greatest contribution probably has been to rmike home owning available to additional thousands of citizens who might not have been able to afford more expensive home financing systems v.hich prevailed before the passage cf the National Housing Ac;. In addition, LJI official declared, u y eleva'Jn-; th. quality <l design. p. 1 ft n. vuxi ccnstvucition ano the livability and usefulness, the FHA has performed a notable service not only to the individuals who buy today's 'mall homes but to the build ing industry, which mast meet the great demand for these homes.
