A PLASTER HOUSE UPON WHICH WOOD HAS BEEN
LIBERALLY USED
         FRONT OFT lIE 1011SF SHOWING EFFECT OF PORCHES WITH WOODEN BALUSTRADES.
WE        have always found       the cOmi)iua<
         tion of rough<finished plaster with
         plenty of exterior woodwork to l)e
         very attractive, an(l this house is a
good example of the way in which we relieve
the severity of the plain plaster.  The design
of the house is not as straight and massive as
is usual with the Craftsman cement or plaster
 o uses, yet it is very simple, and the exterior
features are such as to make for great dur-
ahilitv.
  The foundation of the house as shown is
of very hard and rough red hrick as to the
visible part.  Should this brick not he easily
obtainable or too costly in the local market, a
quarry-faced,   broken-joint ashlar or some
I¹it bush cd in Tli e Craftswait D ccciii be,, 1906.
