Article

Today's house makes good sense

The best houses today are built to satisfy people, not trends. For this good reason, no single house pieces together the whole evolution of home building. And Five Star No. 2303 makes no such claims. It simply meets realities-- most wonderful, but some stern-- about you who are after a place and a way to live in the year 1953.

How to have a better lawn

THICK, beautiful grass-- a really green lawn. That's what we want, and are willing to pay for with time, money, and effort. But we often settle for a lot less, don't consider the fundamentals involved. The growing of healthy plants isn't complicated.

Ever try a dude-ranch vacation?

Maybe you've had the idea that all dude ranches are a clever tourist promotion; that they're an artificial, Hollywood setting, an attempt to re-create a way of life that no longer exists. Maybe you think "the old corral'' went out when barbed-wire fencing and the station wagon came in.

There's space for living

If it's arm-stretching space you want --inside and out-- don't overlook a large, old house. First, you have to determine if the house is structurally sound. But even if it is, most of these old places are as outdated as Grandmother's sadiron.

Build your own home

When you see a new home, shiny and smug in its completeness, it's difficult to appreciate what the owners mean when they say, "We did it ourselves because we had to." Just those words, somehow, don't mean much. You don't get the feeling of the miracle of their accomplishment. The callouses have smoothed on their hands and the tiredness has gone from their faces. It's just another new house, and you aren't especially impressed.

THE MAN NEXT DOOR

Bill Norman, the happy guy, has this inscription from an ancient Egyptian tomb stuck under the glass top of his desk: "Youth is corrupt, lacking in respect for elders, impatient of restraint. Age-old truth is doubted and the teaching of the fathers questioned. The signs of the time forecast the destruction of the world at an early date, and the end of time."
