More Efficiency
Needed In Houses
The Increasing importance of
fuel, electrical energy and other
home essentials have placed upon
the building industry the problem
at Increasing the efficiency of both
new and existing homes
In launching Us "Repair for De
fense' drive, Federal Housing Ad
ministration officials declared that
with defense production using vast
amounts of materials important to
home building yet with the need
for additions! housing acute, the
job at the building industry was to

Simple Precautions
In Framing Insure
Durability of Home
la Oofcmlal days few eswmiUs for
the refinement of lumber were
available and the frames of the
(launch old house* of that era were
put together with massive umbers
Utile removed from their origin*]
log state The excellent condition of
so many of those house* today is
proof of the durability of that type
of eonstrucuon The question natur- 1
ally follows' what at the houses we ;
are building today? What will their
condition be la 390 yean.
The frames of modem homes are
constructed of smaller but better
seasoned members and while the
old houses depended upon mere
bulk for their strength and stilf
naat. less material can actually be
made to do an equal and even bet
ter job today. If given advantage
of being properly placed in your
Modern houses have better foun

warmer and much more weather
Ughi than the two-hundred-year -
old Colonial homes we find along
the Atlantic Coast today, but. be
came we depend on good framing
design rathe* than mere bulk, mod
ern houses do need attention to
their framing layout*.
Even as the oft-mentinned chain
which is only as strong as its weak
est link so too your home can be
little better than the weakest point
to the framing which may eventual
ly lead to more serious defects
greatly reducing the value of your
There are no tricks to good fram
ing which cannot be covered to a
few Important potnu no more num
erous than the fingers of your
hands To build according to thme
few "musts ' ts no more expensive
than to permit your house to be
thrown together.
Any kind of a foundation should
rest on footings wide enough to
keep the foundation from sinking
when the full load at the houee u
applied Footing* should extend six
Inches beyond both side* of the
trail and be at least eight lncbe*
When there is a basement, the
bearing poses which carry uir toad
in the center ot the building should
have a footing eight to twelve Inches
deep and from eighteen to twenty
four square and the footing should
extend three inches above the tin
lafteu flour.
To tncieose the stiffness of the
floor ami to cut down vibration all
joists should be securely braced
with small members, commonly call
ed cross-bridging; 1" x 4*s” to the
form of an X should be placed be
tween the joists at intervals of not
over eight feel.
No Item it more important than
floor joists. They support the entire
building They should be spaced six
teen inches apart. Under partitions
and around openings double joists
should be used They should be
large enough to eliminate deflection
Hoof rafters should be anchored
to the walls by spiking them to two
inch blacking between the rafters
which has been spiked to the wall
plates. This will furnish s good bond
between the roof framing and the
side walls—often a point of weak
Stud* in walls and partitions
should be sixteen inches on centers
They should be doubled around
windows and doors and tripled at
corners Sheathing on outside walls
should be applied at a forty-five
degree angle. Diagonal sheathing is
seven tunes stronger than tranxon
Utl sheathing.
Sub-flooring should also be laid
diagonally and carried in between
the studs and outside wall Diagonal
subflooring is strongest ami also
permits the finished floor to be laid
in any direction There should be a
layer of water ami dust-proof paper
between sub and finished floor.
Headers are supports over open
ings For all openings of three feet
or less two, 2” x 4s' on edge should
be used If the opening is wider
than three feet, the header should
be in the form of a truss
