STATE Millions of Americans Will Be Using Canvas Tent Homes By ANDY LANG AP Newsfoaturos Millions of Americans will be camping out this summer — on weekends, during vacations and, in some cases, for months at a time. During those periods, most of the campers will be using canvas tents for their homes. And, like regular houses, these tents must be properly maintained if they are to give maximum service. A constant enemy of canvas is mildew. To prevent it, remember these tips: never roll up a tent when wet. Never roll up the stakes and the pole with the tent. And never store the tent in a damp place. During a windstorm, tighten all ropes, secure the walls to the pins FENCE TIME Now is a good time to get your sketches in shape if you are planning to install fences. Fence posts are easier to dig when the soil is damp. AJso, your summer gardening can be planned around your fence installations. Western red cedar is a durable wood and ideal for both posts and fencing material. Different Ceiling If you are tired of flat and staid looking ceilings, why nol have beveled cedar siding installed in your family room ? This will give you a shadow line, and will make a most attractive ceiling which will be a conversation piece in your home. and close door flaps. If the tent has a roll-up wall, lace it at the corners. Emergency repairs can be made with patching cement and smal patches. Very small tears can be temporarily mended with adhesive tape. Permanent repairs can be made later with a sewing machine that can handle canvas. In driving tent stakes, m a k them secure but not too deep or .00 light. When the stakes are loo firmly imbedded, the canvas may shrink when wet — causing it to tear al the seams or pull out o: shape. The stakes should be driv en into the ground so that they slope a bit away from the tent Should you have an old tent which has lost its water-resistance, you can buy and put on water-resistant compound. It con applied by brush or spray. . but be sure to follow the instruc Jons about safety, because manj of these preparations are inflam mable. Also, and this is import ant, do not think that the more compound you put on, the belte: he result will be. When a ten las an extra-heavy layer of water resistant compound on it, an un lealthy situation has been crea ted. During the night, the sleep ers' breath condenses on the car vas and then runs down like rain Most states can give you al :he information you want abou camping facilities ir your area And the United States governmen juts out a map which shows the location of all state and federa campsites. A General Rule Put Outdoor Fireplace Near House By ANDY LANG AP Newsfeahires QUESTION: I'm hoping to build an outdoor fireplace somewhere in our backyard, which goes back about 90 feet. I'm fairly certain I can handle the construction of it all right, but I need some advice about where it should be located, how high, etc. Can you help me? ANSWER: As a general rule, the fireplace should be located as near to the house as possible, if only for the sake of convenience. However, this is not always practical, because the chimney of the fireplace should always be higher than the adjoining structure to muni IK "Add a Room for I Less Than You Think" 1 UTTER BROS. | Lumber Yard • ...COTTAGE HILLS m prevent down-drafts. Most fireplaces, therefore, are built a considerable distance away from the house. Build the fireplace so that it faces the prevailing winds. The chimney should have a cap to keep out water and possibly a screen to check flying sparks from wood fires. You can get by without a chimney if you plan to burn only charcoal. The height of the fireplace depends on personal pref erence, but it should be high enough to afford a convenient working level. There isn't much else we can tell you, since so much depends on how elaborate your project GUTTERS? All Work Guaranteed ALTON SHEET METAL 103 Central 462-0600 will be.
