Exciting New Ways to Build With Aluminum (1957) Featuring Our Care-Free Home

In October, 1957, Better Homes and Gardens magazine produced a muli-page spread on the wonders of building with aluminum... and the spread featured the Alcoa Care-Free Home! Each home is slightly different (there are ~24 around the country) but many of the features and design elements are consistent.
