Excerpt from Modern Homes
To every man and woman there comes a time when their keenest desire is for a home of their own - a plot of ground that will blossom in springtime with cool, green lawns and bright, sweet-scented flowers, and a house which, however modest, will express in its design and arrangement their own ideas of what a home should be.
Every home builder yearns for a house that is different from ordinary houses, that possesses distinctive features - a house that people will notice and admire - and this desire is not due to pride alone but to common sense, for such a house will command a better price should the owner ever wish to sell it.
If the rented house you live in increases in value your landlord reaps the profit - not you. If the house you build for yourself is well built and the location wisely chosen, you can live in it rent free for ten years and then sell it for more than it cost you. Home ownership makes for economic independence and happiness.
The houses illustrated in this book of homes possess to an unusual degree a charm and individuality rarely found in moderately priced houses. As you turn the pages you will realize that they have been designed by men who are not only familiar with every kind of building material and the most approved methods of building construction, but who are responsive to the charm of pleasing proportions, to the beauty of harmonious color combinations and to that touch of originality that challenges admiration.
These homes are the last word in style and convenience, yet so perfectly are they designed that not an unnecessary dollar of expense is incurred.
There are complete working drawings for each of the designs that follow in this book and in using these plans the home builder will find that his home has been formed from a complete scheme, from a design that has been thoroughly studied, planned for convenience, constructed for strength, modeled for beauty.
In the home you select there may be some change you would like made - a rearrangement of rooms, some special feature added. Changing the plans to meet your ideas are made by competent architects. We will be glad to give you complete information concerning material and labor costs, approximate time necessary to complete building and other data which may interest you.
Please feel free to consult with us. An estimate of cost on any house you are interested in will be cheerfully furnished. We can be of very definite service to you in explaining construction and other details. Our broad experience and knowledge of materials and trade conditions will be of the greatest help to you - and you need not feel obligated in any way. We are justly proud of our careful and prompt deliveries. Our quick service will help you to avoid waste of time and labor - free you from unnecessary delays.
Come in and see us - or telephone or write and we will make an appointment to suit your convenience.
