Ben Wibben, Young Algona Contractor.... ANTICIPATES A GOOD YEAR OF BUILDING WORK Formerly associated with the Miller Lumber Co., in Algona, for thirteen yean, Ben Wibben has been building now for a period of almost iwo years. 'Among jobs completed by him and his crew are the Ed Wittkopf home in Algona, homes for Leo Franlcl and Bob Knudson, Harry Sabin tenant house, remodeling work at the Student' in Wesley and a number of other building projects in the home and farm building fine. Ben was in the service for two years during the past war. Above is an "on-the-job" photograph showing Ben Wibben and his crew Installing a closed-in front porch on the farm home of Carl Paetz north of Sexton. Along with other Algona contractors ancj building trades men, Ben Wibben can take a look at 1950 and predict an active year ahead in the erection of homes and farm buildings, and remodeling jobs. Like most others, he has a healthy backlog of work' ahead, but like others, too, he says "we aren't turning anything away if it can be handled." Ben has been in building work for himself now for about two years, previously having been associated with the Miller Lumber Co. in Algona. He turns out all types of building work, including cabinetmaking. His work on homes, farm homes and farm buildings has kept him and his crew busy, and for that reason he is confining himself to the home and farm building field, and remodeling work. Ben turns out some striking cabinet work, too. Bill Prothman and Leo Frank! are permanent members of Ben's crew, and with him on all jobs. At present, however, the crew numbers four, and to keep pace with demand, Ben hopes he has to put on more. Ben does lots of farm contracting, and likes the work. If you call him after 6:00 P.M. (he's pretty busy with the hammer during the day) he'll be glad to talk over your building problems with you. g*****^^ Ready-Mixed Concrete Speeds Work - Saves Money Accurately Proportioned for Job Plan to Use "Ready-Mix" on Your Building Jobs This Spring Ready-Mix Concrete & Supply Co.
