Build a Home First 



HOME! There is magpie in that word. It 
brings thoughts of a place that is your own 
— a phice where you and yours are happy 
— a place where you forget your cares and business 
problems — where your wife may rear your children, 
and where, as they grow into young manhood and 
womanhood, they may have their friends. Home 
at once brings to mind the comfort and companion- 
ship that only is found at one's own fireside. 

Then, too, there is the mental picture of the 
grounds surrounding the home. The lawn is 
smooth and velvety— there are flowers in beds, 
along the walk and the driveway— at the back is the 
garden where you may grow vegetables for the 
family table, and perhaps may have a few chickens 
to supply the family with that greatest of breakfast 
delicacies— really fresh eggs. 

^ Thoughts of home may be turned into a realiza- 
tion of a home of your own by firmly resolving 
that you will have a home, and a lawn, and flowers 
and a garden. Building a home is a considerable 
undertaking, but millions of other American fam- 
ilies have achieved homes of their own, and what 



millions have done those who have not yet secured 
homes of their own may do also. 

It is to help those who would have homes of 
their own — those who have the normal stamina to 
make a resolve to build and then carry that resolve 
to completion that this "Build a Home First" book 
is dedicated. Here are a number of home building 
designs, shown in their natural colors — just as the 
homes will be after they are finished and the lawn 
and gardens and flowers have been secured. These 
home building designs are accurate in every detail 
—they were built from proven plans. These plans 
are available for you to build your house from. 

Our experience in planning homes is at your 
disposal. We are glad to give you the benefit of 
our experience in helping many home owners to 
realize their dreams of homes of their own. Should 
this book not contain the sort of a home you may 
have pictured for yourself in your mind's eye call 
at our office. We have hundreds of other home 
building designs that give you a wide range of 
selection. 

Truly there is magic in the word "Home!" 
Make it a reality. 



BUILD 

A HOME 

FIRST 



•1 

rHIS book is designed to help you select the home you want to build. These 
homes are of all the most popular architectural styles. In cost they are the 
lowest possible in view of their styles. Each one of these homes has been 
actually built and, as will be seen from the exterior views, is good to look at. After 
any one of them has been built, its owner will be proud of it. The floor plans were 
drawn to include all of the modern conveniences. 

But that isn't all that these plans offer you. Mere matters of size and layout, im- 
portant as they are, have not been enough for designers of these homes. They have 
sought to give you more, in the form of those Httle niceties of home planning which 
particular people appreciate, such as closets, downstairs lavatories, fireplaces, balconies, 
downstairs bedrooms for servants, easy and convenient communication between rooms, 
step'saving arrangements in the kitchen, and a hundred other little things that mean 
more livability in your home. These are the things that don't cost much extra, some' 
times nothing extra, yet they mean much \\\ comfort and convenience. Years of ex' 
perience are necessary to know how to get these big little extras into a plan and still 
hold down the cost. 

It is just such experience which has gone into the planning of these homes. Nat- 
urally, to make sure that you get the full benefit of that knowledge, you will want to 
have complete plans for building your house. Only in that way can you avoid mis- 
takes and at the same time assure yourself that the house when finished will look just 
as it does in the book. 

It is only by using a complete plan, too, that you can get a definite estimate on 
the cost of building your home. All other figures are but guesses and it is dangerous 
to guess when building, no matter how experienced in building the guesser is. 

The proper person to give you a definite, rehable estimate on your home is your 
local lumber dealer or builder. Consult him; get the benefit of his advice on home- 
building conditions as they obtain in your community. He will tell you and his coun- 
sel will be as reliable as any can be, for your permanent satisfaction is his concern 
and he will see that you get it. 

Finally, remember that in homebuilding as in everything else, you cannot have 
everything you want. Compromises have to be made somewhere and probably more 
have to be made when building a home than in anything else. So don't give up too 
easily. You will find some house in this book which will come as near fitting your 
specifications as probably any house possibly could and in time you will probably find 
it fitting them better than you imagined. 

Begin now to know the pleasure of living in a house suited to your own require- 
ments, and to know the satisfaction of Owning Your Home!

^^HE two'Story gable home shown is on the order of a Colonial type of 
J architecture. However, it has a different interior treatment as there is 
lacking the central hall that marks the Colonial. The home is 26 ft. wide and 
24 ft. deep and contains six rooms and bath. The feature of the home is the 
large living room with French door opening onto the sun room. . .

Y^HIS clever little Colonial cottage contains five rooms and bath yet occupies very little 

^ space, being only 22 feet wide by 29 feet deep, not counting the front porch. The 

important rooms are of surprisingly large size for a home of these dimensions. This is a 

straight-forward, inexpensive home yet because of its good design and pleasing proportions 

will make a very attractive home in any community.

Beautifying the Home 




TIME and attention given to the grounds that 
surround the home pay dividends in satis- 
faction. If the home owner does the work 
himself he will find a great deal of pleasure and 
health in taking care of the lawn, the flowers and 
the vegetable garden. 

Aside from the work that may be spent on the 
lawn and the garden and dower bed soil, there are 
many artistic pieces of garden equipment that may 
be installed to aid man and Nature in beautifying 
the yard. Some of these are shown in the illustra- 
tion on this page. 



At the bottom, the photograph reproduced was 
taken in a garden that had been equipped with an 
arch, trellises and seat. These are graceful pieces of 
garden equipment, and after vines or climbing 
flowers have been trained over them they add enor- 
mously to the beauty of the garden. 

It requires only a small amount of lumber to 
build such pieces of garden equipment, or furniture, 
as they are sometimes called. The material for 
these additions to the garden, or the pieces them- 
selves may be secured at our yard at a small cost. 




Arch trdUses and a trellis summer house are attractive features that may be used to beautify the home garden.
