They're not only important for the appearance of your home, but its comfort, con- venience and maintenance, as well. For example, casement win- dows are frequently pre- ferred above a kitchen sink because they're easy to oper- ate at arm's length. Bay and bow windows add light and additional space to a room as well as a more generous view of the outside. For pri- vacy, awning windows placed high on a wall are ideal. Fortunately for homemak- ers, today there are com- plete factory-made window units available in a variety of materials. Basic stock window styles include the following types: Double-hung -- a two-sash window with one above the other, moving up and down, Casement--the sash is hinged at the side to swing out, and generally is operated by a ro- tary opener. ~-C~'ARLES WOODS FOR Paid PoL Adv. by Charles Woods, Dothan, Alabama HAWKINS CON CO.
