GROUND PLANS. Tuis plan is devised with reference to being occu- pied by two families. The necessity for this often occurs in the improvement of town or village lots. Under such circumstances it is necessary to preserve in the aspect of dwellings as much of the rural char- acter as possible, and at the same time secure all the conveniences within reach. JlooMs.-The front entrance is at A, fig. 173; the hail is 6 feet wide, in which is a flight of stairs; B, the living-room, is 12 by 14 feet; adjoining is the kitchen C, entered from the hall beneath the stair landing, and containing cooking-ranges, closets, and a side entrance; D is a parlor, and E a veranda. The plan of the second floor, fig. 174, exhibits K, the stair landing; I, bath-room; F, G, H, chambers corresponding to the size of the rooms below.
