Your Local NATIONAL HOMES Builder-Dealer 

will be happy to help you decide, and to 
quote finished home prices. National's huge 
buying power plus assembly-line methods gives 
you more home for less money , . . always! 

You will note that "Custom-Line" 
National homes come in two general 
classifications of architectural design . . . 
"Ranger" and "Ranch." The "Ranger" 
homes are contemporary in style. The 
"Ranch" homes are a modernized version 
of the comfort and charm of the classic 
"Cape Cod" homes of our forefathers. 

Both "Ranger" and "Ranch" homes 
may have either "open" interiors per- 
mitting free flow of family activities from 
area to area of the home or "enclosed" 
rooms affording cozy privacy preferred 
by many families. 

Here are but a few of the many fea- 
tures that will make your new National 
home Outstanding in livability and value: 

• Spacious living areas, featuring abun- 
dant closet and storage space. All closets 
extend from floor to ceiling. Sliding wood 
doors in the "Custom-Line" bedrooms; 
bamboo folding doors included in most 
"Pacemakers," give full access to the en- 
tire closet area. 

• Big kitchens with efficient layouts, 
many of a size to permit dining and family 
recreation area. 

• Aluminum sash windows are horizontal 
sliding type, easily cleaned from inside the 

All windows are extra large and 
weatherstripped. Window screens and 
screen doors with all models. Storm win- 
dows and storm-screen doors optional. 

• Living rooms have picture windows or 
ceiling-high glass walls as noted in indi- 
vidual design descriptions. Ceiling high 
glass walls in "Custom-Line" models fea- 
ture sliding lower panels of glass, or lou- 
vers for ventilation. 

• All homes are completely insulated with 
Fiberglas, assuring maximum economy 
from the heating plants, which are of latest 
design. Your choice of automatic oil heat, 
or gas (where available locally) with 
thermostatic control. 

• All "Custom-Line" homes have king- 
size medicine cabinet in baths and many 
have built-in vanities. 

• Extra outside storage space for garden 
equipment, toys, etc., is available through 
the use of a special unit which may be 
attached to house or carport. The unit 
is optional with all models.

2 and 3-bedroom homes 

This group, which includes the Alton, Avon, Avalon,

materials, design, and construction as all National homes. 
To keep the prices of this group of homes far below any 
others, it is necessary that certain minor features come to 
you so that a handy "do-it-yourself man" can complete 
them at his convenience and to his own taste. For ex-

inets and storage may be added. The floor, which is 
either wood or insulated concrete slab, may be finished 
later with tile or other types of floor covering. The walls 
are unfinished gypsum board which may be painted any 
desired color at a later date. Of course, the homes may 
be comfortably lived in "as is."

For a Site on a Hillside, Choose 
a Dramatic Variation in . . . 



Where rolling terrain permits, this 
brilliant two-level series gives an en- 
chanting answer to your desire for 
something special in a home. Created 
to nestle against a slope, the flexible 
basic plan (above) has numerous 
lower-level variations giving you the 
room arrangement of your liking. You 
may select any lower-level plan on 
these two pages, with its appropriate 
design, to form a "Custom-Line" 



Hollybrook. But first — there are two 
types of hillside lots: down slope sites, 
with the lot sloping downward from 
the street; uphill sites, where the lot goes 
up from the street. With a down slope 
lot, the carport adjoins the upper floor, 
letting you drive in at street level. On 
an uphill lot it is best to have the car- 
port as part of the lower floor. Be sure 
to keep this in mind when selecting 
your Hollybrook design. 

RANGER DESIGN R-25 • Tour neigh- 
bors will look up admiringly at this unique

Its Easu to Own 

the National Home of your choice! 

All National homes are eligible for FHA in- 
sured mortgage loans under the latest structural 
engineering bulletin. They invariably require 
minimum down and monthly payments. 

• Due to variations in requirements of different 
areas, states, municipalities, government insur- 
ing agencies and mortgage companies, it is im- 
possible for National Homes Corporation to de- 
fine the specifications of the finished product. 
While all National homes are sold by authorized 
National Homes dealers complete, including wir- 
ing, plumbing and heating — ready to live in — 
variations in specifications may exist. For ex- 
ample, in some cases the house may be sold 
including rough grading only while others may 
include seeding or sodding and may include 
landscaping. Air conditioning, washers, dryers 
and other appliances may or may not be included 
in the contract. In purchasing a National home, 
you should check with your local dealer for a 
complete understanding as to what items are in- 
cluded in your purchase contract. 

# National Homes Corporation reserves the right 
to introduce changes in plans and specifications 

without notification and without obligation to 
include such changes in any National home al- 
ready delivered. The company further reserves 
the right to make changes in materials and "brand 
names" from those described in this brochure 
without obligation. 

• Your National Homes dealer is an independent 
business man and not an agent, representative or 
direct employee of National Homes Corporation. 
In his function of creating your home, he pur- 
chases, supervises and is responsible for every 
detail from the vacant lot to the finished resi- 
dence. National Homes Corporation is only one 
of his many suppliers; he buys from them the 
structural home parts in one complete "package," 
thus eliminating slow, costly fabrication on the 
building site. 

• Due to variations in local conditions, only your 
local National Homes dealer-builder can quote 
completed home prices. His figure is always com- 
puted to give you the utmost in value — the lowest 
possible down and monthly payments. The 
National Homes way is the way to get more 
house for your money!
