Transcript Enameloid Chinese Red and Blue to crawl into them, close the door, and sit there all cramped up, breathing their fetid air in glamorous twilight! Our parent's home was for a time in life, to us, a vast, impersonal world. We built to shut it out, as later in a larger world we were to build those refuges from the impersonal and vast which we call HOME. "The child is father of the man". And though our memories of early childhood fail us, we may believe that much of what we adults are derives from them. Houses of shawls, houses of old boards and sacks and flattened out tin cans, tree houses, backyard houses, houses hollowed out of leafy thickets, igloos of snow: each house we children built, because we'd built it as we children wanted it to be, was for a time—an hour or a day, a week, a year—more HOME to us than any spot on earth. S.W.P. Silver Gray and White Through that intention, always, will the house we've built ourselves be HOME. I had precious little money when, grown up and through with school and all of that, I decided to have a house of my own. But land was cheap in those days down in Maine. I bought a hillside lot. "It starts here at this alder bush", said the man who sold it to me, "and runs sort of down hill to about that old tree". I drove my stakes. I drew my plan. Enameloid Sunny Yellow and Blue Living room (a house begins with that)—and Living Rooms to me meant kitchen, dining room and studio—Living Room 12' x 16'; Bed Room, 6x8'; Vestibule (for winters on a Maine island are cold), 4' x 6'; and a wood shed. I drew my plan; I bought my lumber. And I hired a man to build it. "You'll start Monday?", I asked—for I'm always in a hurry for things. "You bet", he said. But he didn't start Monday. Nor the next Monday. Nor the next, nor ever. So that at last I got so fed Enameloid Gold and Blue up with his delays that I said to thunder with him, and built the house myself. Thus I became a carpenter. When winter came the house was all finished except the foundation (I'd propped it up on locust posts), the shingles on the outside walls, the lath and plaster on the inside, and the ceilings. In short, it was ready to live in. I did live in it; and since then I have come to know the arctic and describe its winters as extremely mild. Yes, it was cold. Yet the 2' x 3' cook stove did yield a gentle warmth to a restricted area; the lamp light at night looked warm; and my red calico curtains transmuted cold daylight into a glow as grateful to me as had been the little old red shawl house of my earliest memory. It was but an incident, though at the time a trying one, that next spring up marched the formidable widow Albee and showed me that my house stood (Continued On Page 21) Enameloid Flame Red and White
