Canvas House Costing But $1000 to Be Home of Future
CANVAS is now being considered by architects as an attractive and economical building material for the small homes of the future. Canvas can now be treated with preservative paints to make it waterproof and fireproof.
A summer home which can be built anywhere for less than $1000 uses canvas almost exclusively as a surfacing material. The open lower deck, raised one foot off the ground to avoid dampness, is used for garage, storage, and shower bath. The main floor 8 feet above is reached by a folding stairway, as is the sun-deck above.
