Build for Your Needs

I have a growing collection of mid-century magazines, including issues of House and Garden.  I thought today I'd share an article (from the Sept. 1950 issue, by Douglas J Birrell) about building a house for needs, rather than wants, as we seem to do today.   In Australia in the 1950s most people saved and paid upfront for their homes - and many built their own.  Not many people had mortgages.  How I wish!   This short article shares some tips and ideas for building a basic 'nucleus' of a house that can be extended as needed.
