elastic building material on
earth and, judged from the
view)oint of health, makes
the best all round house
you can build. It's a ioor
conductor of heat or cold
and rejects dampness abso

This may seem a lot of
trouble, but you don't build
a home every year and it
pays to build wisely. It
also pays to look closely at
the kind of lumber you use.
There are many many va
