Merry Christmas

Make yours a Merry Christmas. A house that glows a welcome to Dad when he comes home from his day's work.

Space where you need it

Where do you need the most space in your home? Not for sleeping, certainly, and not for eating. You need the most space for living, both indoors and out, and for working, whether that work is cooking, washing, or making and repairing things.

Don't be an armchair Eskimo!
