* Buildfor lastingcomfort, not for a price. A small home, .. staunch to the last detail, isa better "bargain" than a large one built with cheap materials. Now! Good Hardware for cottages as well as castles ... and the cost is not prohibitive F you are building a modest, Ssix-room cottage-Corbin makes good hardware for it. And at a price you can afford. The fact is Corbin makes good hardware for every type, size and kind of build ing. But that doesn't mean it all costs the same. The cost depends on what you need and want. After all, the real difference between cheap and good hardware is not price. The difference in first cost is little - less than 1% of the total cost of the building. But the difference in what you get in service, looks, and security -- is great. If you're building a home to live in-to last-to give you happiness and comfort - don't skimp on the things that cost you least. You'll only save pennies-later to spend pounds repairing broken locks, replacing hardware that rusts and ruins, that won't fasten, won't work. Whether the house you're building be six rooms or sixty, give it good hardware. Corbin makes it-and at a price you can afford. Send for this helpful hard ware booklet-Free! Write Dept. N-2 for "Good GOOD BUILDINGS ,&6 Buildings Deserve Good Hardware." It contains im portant information you need before building-also many illustrations of cor rect hardware for different periods of architecture. P. & F.
