ALUMINUM HOUSE COSTS BUT $5,200#*


LOS ANGELES, (AP) ^An all-aluminum house, erected by 10 men in eight hours on a concrete slab at a cost of $5,200, was publicly displayed today for the first time by Trend Homes, Inc.

The two-bedroom, modernistic dwelling is expected to go into mass production within four months. Its designer, Jacque Fresco, says the first assembly plant will be erected within two months in the Los Angeles area and four other plants will be built shortly thereafter in other sections of the country.^

Walls and roof of the structure are prefabricated in sections. #Windows can be substituted for wall sections.

Covering 914 square feet, the house consists of a living room *(13.5x16.5)*, two bedrooms *(10x11.5 and 10x13.5)*, kitchen-dinette *(7.5x10.5)*, and bath *(5.5x7.5)* built around a central hallway. An air conditioning unit is in the ceiling. Also included is a sheltered side patio *(8x8)* which can be walled in to provide another room.

The ribbed aluminum walls are covered with a rubber composition resistant to heat and noise. The roof is flat and sloped.#

Fresco said the structure had been approved by the Los Angeles Building Trades Council. He said FHA has not yet given its approval, but that he expected it within a few days. The price of $5,200 covers the house and plumbing. Cost of the lot and concrete slab is extra.
