Sounds pretty nice ? till you

Does A 1947 House
You've heard a lot about the high cost of building . . . but have you
personally checked on it? .
AH costs are relative, of course.
If the farmer, the working man, the grocer, the clothier can buy more
house in 1947 by selling less farm products,, less hours of labor, less food,
less clothes, than he had to sell in 1940 to build the same house. ... If that
is true then the cost of building today is low, not high.
Examine the figures below (they're from official sources) and figure
it out for yourself!
If You're A Farmer . . .
Your 1947 house, at 1947 prices, will
cost you 88,500 pounds less of top
grade hags than the 1940 house, at
Or ? you can buy the 1947 house for
7,400 pounds less of top-grade beef
Or ? 1,732 bushels less of wheat.
Or ? 4,466 bushels less of corn.
If You're A Working Man .
Common labor can work 3,220 less
hours than in 1940 to own the 1947
home. Painters can work 2,048 less
hours to pay for the 1947 home.
Electricians can work 1,218 less
Plumbers, 838 less hours.
Carpenters, 146 less hours.
If You're A Grocer . . .
The 1947 house, at 1947 prices, will
cost you 2,327 pounds of coffee less
than the 1940 house, at 1940 prices.
Or ? you can buy the 1947 house tor
4,223 boxes less of soap powder.
Or ? 9,717 pounds less of chuck beef
Or ? 5,654 dozen eggs less.
Or ? 5,548 pounds less of American
If You're A Clothier . . .
The 1947 house, at 1947 prices, win
cost you 610 less men's shirts than
the 1940 house, at 1940 prices.
Or ? you can buy the 1947 house for
212 less pairs of men's sfaoes.
Or ? 80 men's hats less.
Or ? 318 less women's shirtwaist
Or ? 337 less women's spring coats.
Those figures are based on the national averages.
Compare our local commodity prices with local home prices ? you'll
find you get more for your dollar when you put your dollar into a house.
Especially, compare the cost of the lumber for the average SIX
ROOM HOUSE, with general cost-of-living prices! Amount of lumber
necessary to build an average SIX ROOM HOUSE, is approximately 12,
000 board feet, which will not average over $100 per 1,000 board feet,
which is cheap when compared to the total cost of the house, which is
Lumber, comparatively, was cheap months ago . . . and many lumber
items sell for less today than they did a few months ago.
Figure it out for yourself . . . then come in and let us discuss your
building needs with you.
