The AJgona Upper Des Moines, AJgona, Iowa, March 18,1937 2 Bath Not Twice As Expensive In building a new home (be prospective owner is reminded that, contrary to common opinion, two bathrooms do not cost twice as much as one. A certain amount of necessary piping is required whether there is one bathroom or two. In most cases this piping is adequate to serve two or more bathrooms. This fact may be borne in mind when building a financed home. Staggered Shelves For Shallow Closet Shallow closets have always been a problem, and the modern housewife has tried many methods of converting them to a logical use. Book shelves may be built in stagger formation, with a tall vase or statue helping to fill in vacant space. Lighting may be concealed in the top of the closet.
