It has been estimated that Tennessee will need approximately 75,000 new rural homes during the next 10 years, and that 60,000 houses will need major repairs. In addition, more than 200,000 farm families will want to provide for electricity in the home, and 300,000 will want running water installed.
Since estimates of cost of these improvements run into millions of dollars, it is important that farm families considering such building or repairing study the most economical ways of doing so, say rural engineering specialists of the Agricultural Extension Service. The Extension Farm Building Service offers not only plans for dwelling houses, but has also a wide selection of plans for other farm buildings. County agents have copies of the Building Service publications, and can help get complete plans to meet almost any farm building need.
