THE COMFORTS OF HOME: This is an interior view of a partly furnished "expansible house" which is one of 480 which are being set up just north of Willow Run for the use of workers at the Ford bomber plant. This dwelling unit consists of one-half of an "expansible house" and it has been expanded. The day bed comes with the "house," and the rest of the furniture is provided by the Federal Public Housing Authority. Built into the inner wall of these units is a bathroom (at left of daybed), which contains, in addition to a shower, a 30-gallon hot water heater fired by fuel oil. Visible is the three-burner, oven-type cook stove, which is fueled by (unreadable). In the left foreground is the heating unit, a fuel oil space heater. Also built in are a (unreadable) shelves and a small wardrobe closet. All a family needs to occupy this unit are cooking (unreadable) tableware, and bedding. The FPHA has not announced what the rental of these units will be, but it is expected to be $30 a month or lower.
