Transcript Parents' Magazine Sponsored Home A parade home that will capture national as well as local attention is the model built by Robert W. Clemens at 5113 Jackwood. It is the Parents' Magazine and American Gas Association Home designed by local architects Charles Wilson and Mr. Clemens. The construction of this home incorporates the use of the new revolutionary steel frame system of construction being manufactured by the J & B Manufacturing Company of Houston. The exterior is of old New Orleans brick, pinkish in color, with trim of baked enamel steel and aluminum frame windows. The floor plan includes a living room, dining room, family room,, kitchen, four bedrooms, utility room, two-car garage and several outdoor courts. Entry to the bedroom wing at the back of the house is via the kitchen and family room. The kitchen is in the center of the house, with easy access to every room. This feature was a part of the Parents' Magazine plan and is designed so that the housewife has visual control of the play areas on either side of the house, of the family room, front door and the entry as well as the rear bedroom. The living room and dining room are in an L-shape, separated by a massive brick fireplace extending through the exterior wall to an outdoor court. It has both an indoor and outdoor fireplace and is equipped with electric spit and cooking unit. The family room extends 24 feet across the width of the house and opens onto a play court. The brick fireplace acts as a divider for the outdoor living area, forming an adult entertaining court outside the living room. The open court side of the house has an almost continuous glass wall with sliding panels. Ceilings are of three-foot square perforated metal panels with baked enamel finish. A new ceiling material, it is attractive as well as acoustically advantageous. The home is furnished in contemporary style by Finger's Contract Supply Co. and is air-conditioned with a Servel unit. Mr. Clemens, Vice President of the J & B Manufacturing Co., in addition to being an architect and developer, is acting as the builder in introducing this new steel frame system to the market. Jack Thompson, the President of J & B Manufacturing Co.. and Mr. Clemens will direct the future marketing to builders of this locally developed steel system which is receiving so much national recognition. Mr. Clemens is an active member of the Houston Home Builders Association and is Chairman of the 1955 Parade of Homes.
