BUILD YOUR OWN SUMMER CAMP OR CABIN

Advanced ""do it yourself"" projects for the really ambitious worker are here blue-printed, described in detail and offered in enough variety for plenty of choice. From the simplest core or starter unit, capable of expansion, informal and inexpensive, to more formal, elaborate, cottages, each plan has its own construction outline (foundation, flooring, wall framing, roof, side wall finish, vents, doors and other openings, insulation) and materials' list; there is discussion of the selection of site and of orientation for heat and cold and breezes; there are further sections on foundations and framing, exterior and interior finishing, water supply, plumbing, drainage, sewage and electricity. All is geared to one man construction with minimal space and money as a basis. But for anyone planning a summer place who has not the time nor inclination, these floor plans and surveys of possibilities should prove extremely helpful in arrangements with local contractors and builders.
