INDIVIDUALITY!

Hidebound conformity to the "rules" would soon make all our homes pretty much alike. But you certainly aren't the same person your neighbor is, and your home shouldn't be a carbon copy, either. Here we show you ideas that could never be produced on an assembly line-- each one shows the ingenuity of people who became tired of the same old thing-- and happily went off in another direction.

This one question stands out: "My husband drinks too much, but he won't listen to me when I try to help. All I ever get is an alibi. What can I do?"

The room that comes in a package

Great news! This new package lets you add a room with only eight tools, once foundation and floor are finished. Everything comes in large parts; all you do is put up the framework, fasten in the big one-piece sections. Heating, cooling, electrical service are handled in much the same way as in an ordinary room addition.

Weekends of work for years of play

Cal and Jane Howell, who do their everyday living in Redwood City, California, often weekended at Squaw Valley.
