"I've often wished that I had clear, 
For life, six hundred pounds a year; 
A handsome house to lodge a friend; 
A river at my garden s end; 
A terraced walk, and half a rood 
Of land set out to plant a wood." 

— Swift 



Home building is a personal expression of taste; it is, at the same time, a fine 
art. Home building in the mass is a reflection of the culture and progress of a people. 
It is the individual home as described by Swift, not the expedient residence of the 
itinerant cliff dweller, that represents the finer element in our social advancement. 

The illustrations on these pages show instances in which the architect has given 
satisfying expression to the owner's desire. They may serve to assist prospective home 
builders to define and crystallize their present nebulous ideas. Then, thru skilled archi- 
tectural treatment, these ideas may be appropriately interpreted into the actual 
residence— a satisfying home "for HOME LOVERS." 

The intelligent and artistic use of wood has been an outstanding feature of 
American architecture as demonstrated in the historic homes of America. Its structural 
and decorative properties contribute largely to permanence and beauty and are funda- 
mental to the making of a home out of a house. 

The beautiful frame home of today is protected in the material of which it is 
built to a gTeateT extent than ever before possible. Thru modern distribution and 
merchandising practices, the architect has available a wider species and grade selection 
of lumber and is certain of securing the material he specifies. The lumber dealer can 
advise what grade to use for each purpose. The well manufactured lumber of today 
may be had carefully graded, the grade mark identifying the quality of each piece and 
the guaranteeing "Tree Mark" assuring the genuineness of such grade identification. 
It is with such assurance that one may look forward to the completed home of wood — 
the realization of a wish well nigh universal. 

Grateful acknowledgment is made to the architects and home owners 
who cooperated in assembling the photographs of the homes shown and 
to Eldred Mowery, A. I. A., for the architectural designs and renderings.

one loves trees. The mature tTee 
ready for harvesting is not allowed 
to die and waste, but Is converted 
into lumber from which homes 
are built. Young growing trees, 
stately trees, then the completed 
home of wood — a cycle of coopera- 
tion between man and nature — 
true conservation of America's 
only renewable natural resource."
