Transcript DESIGN NO. 14—A semi-Bungalow and a very good plan indeed. Note the "texture molded" courses of Red Cedar Shingle walls laid up in the popular style of "two and six or eight" to give the double line effect. Note also the porch columns finished in Red Cedar Shingles —the detail illustration below shows this finely, a truly attractive and harmonizing feature pleasingly emphasized by the evergreens and foliage. Shingles of Red Cedar can be laid in any temperature, torrid summer or most frigid winter, without fear of "running tar" or "cracking as- \ phalt." — The actual process of laying wooden shingles is so simple ~~~ that skilled labor is unneces- „a| sary. No valuable time wasted "cutting to fit" "cementing."

Here we show homes with Thatched Roofs and side walls of Red Cedar Shingles. Such a home is full of architectural originality and withal practical. It is remarkable that this distinctly American product, the Red Cedar Shingle, is able to reproduce from the past such pleasing adaptations of English, French, Italian and Spanish architecture. Special manufacturing facilities are necessary to make thatch roof style of shingles. This Association will be pleased to furnish information on such shingles should you desire it.
