Any house that Is from ten to twenty years old, has features that might be Improved. As the family grows, the rooms need change, both as to size and number. The original arrangement of rooms, particularly door and window locations, also often prove to be unsatisfactory. In other words, any house that was o. k. when built, in time becomes out-of-date and needs changing. Perhaps this is true of your house. You may think you will have to build new to get what you want That may not be necessary. Many an old house has been literally transformed Into a practically new and up-to-date home by a little careful planning and usually at a cost so low that It was decidedly surprising and pleasing to the owners. If your family Is in the least dissatisfied with any of th« details of your house, tell us about It and we are almost certain that we can help you make it over in a way, and at a cost, that will be entirely satisfactory to you* No obligation at all in getting our suggestions and estimates.
