Excerpt from Modern Dwellings and Their Proper Construction: A Book of Practical Designs and Information for Those Who Wish to Build and Beautify Their Homes

IN this design we have a wide central hall with large rooms on either side, thus making a broad front to the house. An eight-foot veranda extends entirely across and around the front, producing a handsome effect. A cosy balcony and a stately tower add life and dignity to the general design. It contains the elements of a good Southern home at the price, and may be enlarged as required._ With artistically arranged grounds, it will present the appearance of a veritable palace of elegance and refinement.

The bed-room and bath-room on the first ?oor will add to the convenience of the plan. A fire-place can be added to this room and the one above it, if desired, at a cost of perhaps A cellar is under the back part of the house only, with brick foundation. 2x 6 studding are used in construction of outside walls, covered With sheathing and weatherboard ing. Roof shingled. Beautiful hardware, glass and plumbing were used. Principal part of first story was finished in hardwoods, the rest in bright pine, natural finish.

The frontage of the house is 70 feet with a depth of 65 feet, with stories 11 and 10 feet, respectively.
