We know how to size up old buildings to see: 1st. Whether it will pay to remodel them. 2nd. Whether the changes desired can be made economically. 3rd. What the cost will be. We make no charge for this service. We have done this for many fanners with results that have been very satisfactory to them. We invite you to let us survey your buildings to see what, if anything, can be done with them and the cost. It's entirely possible that in this way we can help you to enjoy a practically new house or barn or other buildings at a fraction of the cost of new ones. Call at our office or give us a ring on the phone and tell us when we may come out and go over your buildings with you. F. S.
