In this Catalogue we have shown a few cottage plans and elevations indicative of the Homes we are producing, designed by a leading Architect who has made a life study of these types of homes.

EASY BUILT (Easy to Build)—Means all timber for the building is prepared by machinery and plainly marked by skilled workmen, and cut to length for easy erection, according to plans supplied by us.

V. & R.

"Easy-Built"

HOMES

are permanent buildings (not portable), and are complete ready for erection when despatched from our Factory, and, in conjunction with the full plans, working details, and lists of materials supplied, any Tradesman can erect; as all the technical part of the work is done by us. The frame and roof timbers are cut and prepared, the plates, studs, joists and all other timbers distinctly marked.

The windows and doors are fitted into frames, complete with hinges, locks and fasteners. This is a distinct service which we include in our buildings, and which is usually an extra with other firms. Our buildings are complete, as per specification on back of page. We can, of course, give optional prices for alternative buildings without lining, or with Rusticated Weatherboards, Fibro Cement Sheeting, Heraklith, etc.

St**    %

Send us a rough sketch, of your requirements, giving size of rooms and verandahs, when we will be pleased to make up special quotations.

NO WASTE materia! is paid for, and you thus obviate any freight and cartage on material not used, which occurs with all buildings prepared on the job. •

We do not include foundation blocks, bricks, lime, sand, cement or paint, nor fittings, such as mantels, grates, bath, basin, sink, copper, tubs, etc.

We do not erect—but prepare buildings ready for erection only. We can recommend reliable builders who, however, will submit quotations.

We invite comparison of our Specifications with others, as, although our price may not always be the lowest, if Specifications are carefully compared, you will find that we give real value.

WE SUPPLY all our buildings in accordance with the following specification, unless otherwise ordered:—
