Inasmuch as this Is a base* mentless design, the laundry room is convenient to the kitchen, as well as having an outdoor exit for hanging the clothe? outside in the summertime.

PHONE HO 5-2555 By ANDY LANO AP Newsfeatures If our mail is any indication, the boom in backyard swimming pools is still very much on the upswing.

Of course, if you have a $15,000 home and want to buy a money you spent for such a pool. A vital factor in the installation of the pool is the reliability of the contractor. Talk to people who have had pools instaalled by him, especially to those who have used the pools for two or more years. In getting bids, be sure you understand every detail of what the bids include. For instance, a shady contractor may promise you a pool 25 feet by 40 feet. Later you may find he included the four-foot "walk" around the pool. Another point to remember: installation of the pool may increase the assessment on your property which will mean a higher tax rate Carefully check all municipal regulations regarding backyarc pools. You may discover thai there will be extra expenses you hadn't counted on, such as a fence around the podl. Investigate, investigate and in vestigate. If you know all the answers 'before you begin, the chances are you'll get many years pool.
