Abstract: For years, houses with three bedrooms have been built for sale by contractors -Kith concern for adequate family clothing storage being secondary, if considered at all, to those specifications established by the Federal Housing Administration, organized in June, 1934. 1 The occupants of these houses had little or no part in planning their storage facilities. The contractor, having had no basis for change; and the purchasing occupants, arriving too late upon the scene to offer constructive recommendations for changes, have been unable to utilize their abilities and needs to benefit both parties. No record of a previous study was found which would support the contentions of either builders or occupants concerning the amount and type of planned storage.
