One manufacturer has had a leading architect, an authority on authentic woodwork detail, design a whole new line in period millwork. Even for a very small and simple house, or if you're remodeling, you can get ready-built mantels, staircases, doorways, and cupboards that are excellent in design. Made at the mill in quantity production, a piece costs much less than if it were made singly for the job.

SHALL WE USE CONCRETE?

HORACE (Go West, Young Man) GREELEY built a concrete home on his estate at Chappaqua, New York, in 1852. He built it first as a barn.
