                          AN OLD-FASHIONED HOUSE
cess, a woman would have to be
the sort of a housekeeper her grand-
mother probably was, and take a
personal interest in her cupboard
shelves and the brilliancy of her copper and
brass  cooking utensils, which few  women
nowadays have time to do.
  For  those who  prefer  a separate dining
room and a kitchen proper, we would suggest
FIRST STORY FLOOR PLAN.
         that the pantry and storeroom be
         thrown    into one and used for a
         kitchen.  The chimney built for the
         range would serve equally well for
a fireplace in the dining room, and the range,
if set in the adjoining corner, could easily be
connected with the same flue.  One of the
pleasantest features is the veranda at the back,
which can he enclosed with glass in winter.
REcESSED VERANDA AT THE SACK OF THE HOUSE, WHICH MAY BE USED AS A DINING
PORCH IN SUMMER AND
GLASSED IN FOR A cONSERVATORY OR  SUN ROOM IN WINTER.
