Useful Patio Doesn't Need To Be Costly Tens of thousands of U. S. women are discovering that the most useful patio or outdoor living area need not be very expensive. For instance, by extending the rafters of your home out six to eight feet from the walls, you have the roof section for a covered patio. If you want merely an overhead screen to filter sunlight, just install a facia board at the ends of the rafters to give a neat appearance, and your patio roof section is complete. Exciting Pattern The rafters of attractive Douglas fir form an exciting pattern and, while durable and strong enough to support the roof, they have out- si iding characteristics of grain and texture which make them ideal as a decorative material. Some housewives cover the fir rafters with any one of several new plastic roofing materials which add color and charm and a sort of holiday air to that section of the outdoors. The exposed rafters blend well with the plastic roofing. To get maximum use of the roof extension and make it into a genuine patio, it is well to consider some sort of flooring where tables and chairs can be used with comfort. Some women prefer having a simple decking of the same Douglas fir lumber. The deck can be built of ordinary 2x4s which should be laid on edge with a slight spacing between each 2x4 to allow water to run off. This sort of decking adds much to the utility of the patio area, for it gets you out of the dirt and off the grass. These decks are mighty easy to keep clean. All you do is turn the garden hose on them and the dust and dirt washes away and down through the narrow openings between each 2x4. One thing you will have to take into consideration is that a deck of this sort must have a good solid foundation. You should build a framework of stout fir timbers 4x6 or so and have them resting on small cement piers or rocks. Leave some space between decking and ground. Try to plan your patio so that it can easily be reached from the living room or kitchen of the home. Many women find that the patio which opens right off the living room gets the most use. In good weather it is natural to step outdoors from the living room. If the kitchen can be reached directly PLEASE!!!

One of the most satisfactory outdoor living areas is an all-purpose deck which has a wide variety of uses. Covered by a cantllevered roof section for all-season use, from the patio, the problem of summer entertaining is much simplified, for it will be easy to serve lunches, snacks, suppers and even dinners. Don't spend a lot of money needlessly on your patio and outdoor living room. It has been proven that the more simple they are kept, the more the family enjoys them. A good solid deck has a lot of appeal, and colorful lawn furniture turns such an area into a veritable luxury resort atmosphere. One thing about this business of extending your roof line to form a partial screen or filtered shelter over a patio is that the extended rafters sort of tie the patio to the home. This wedding of home with outdo' A is important in this age of casual living. The aim is to create a dual living area, one with a roof and the other outdoors, so that the human inhabitants may move from one area to the other without being conscious of change. Most of these exposed rafter sections offer an opportunity to do a bit of extra decorative work and get the most out of your wood. Simple clear varnish will preserve the natural color of this wood, and fir has a rich golden tone which adds much to an outdoor area. Wood is a natural substance so it will blend well with almost any outdoor arrangement of shrubs, trees or plants. Some like to stain these exposed rafters with any of several modern stains which have a lively and friendly color. The stain does not hide the texture of these woods. this deck of Douglas fir 2x4g turned edgewise Is an ideal entertainment center. Deck Is spaced to allow water run-off. Wood texture matches outdoor snubs and trees. Pre-Season SPECIAL! 1957 MODEL 1-Ton Thinline Air-Conditioner $229 95 Model R60 • Automatic Tamp Control • Only UVa-in.

Tlmo* Horald, Carroll, Iowa •V Friday, July 5, 19S7 / Sunny Kitchen Helps Perk Up Morning Coffee "It's bad enough to get up and get breakfast, and everybody off in the morning," a delegate to the Women's Congress on Housing complained, "but it's doubly difficult when you have to do it in a gloomy, sunless kitchen." Most of the 103 housewives who attended the congress in Washington, D. C, agreed that a kitchen with large windows to let in the morning sun is a must. Preferably, they said, the window area should also give a commanding view of the rear yard, so that a watchful eye can be kept on the children at play. Casement or awning type windows of ponderosa pine are popular with many homemakers because they can be opened easily by turning a handle, and both sides can be washed from within. Also, since wood is a natural insulator, kitchen moisture won't condense on the frames or sashes. The Women's Congress further : specified that the kitchen be ad\ jacent to the dining or family area ! where the children play indoors. A ponderosa pine Dutch door be, tween the two rooms lets a mother j keep tab on her youngsters while discouraging any ideas they may have about invading the kitchen and sabotaging her routine. j Marquardt Family Of Auburn Returns From Trip to Coast | (Time* HerKld New* Servlrel i AUBURN - Mr. and Mrs. H.

The workman Installing thick, six-Inch batts of mineral wool Insulation in the celling of this new home Is paving the way for comfort for Its future owners. Since the house Is to be air conditioned, six Inches of mineral wool were specified for the ceilings, four inchea for the walls, and two Inches around the edges of the concrete slab on which the house rests. Research has shown that these thicknesses of Insulation can make it possible for smaller, less cnatly equipment to cool a house. The money saved usually Is more than enough to pay for the added insulation. In addition, operating costs are lowered by as much as half. NATURE ADDS HUSH TO 'QUIET' ROOM . . .

More Homes to Be Heated By Electricity Heating With... electricity hai grown from an experimental infant to an increasingly important force in home comfort. More than 300,000 homes in the nation will be heated completely or in part by electricity by the end of 1957. There are two types of electric heat. One is called resistance heat* ing. With this system, temperatures of individual rooms can be controlled to suit family tastes. Bedrooms for example, can be kept at lower temperatures fof more economy and sleeping com* fort. The second type is the heat pump, which draws heat from the outside air Into the house. Working in reverse in the summer, the heat pump is an air - conditioning unit, expelling heat from the house. A house heated by electricity must be thickly insulated. Insulation brings the advantages of electric heating well within the homeowner's means. Electric - heat manufacturers recommend six inches of mineral wool insulation In ceilings, four inches in walls, and two inches in floors over unheated spaces. Homes built on concrete slabs • need two inches of perimeter insulation around the edges of the slab. Give Your Home A Weil-Groomed Look!
