A SMALL SHINGLED HOUSE THAT SHOWS MANY INTERESTING STRUCTURAL FEATURES WE have suggested the use of shingles for the walls of this plain little cottage because they seem the best atlapteti to the peculiarities of its construction. They should, however, be laid in double course, the top ones beiiig well ex- posed and the under ones showing not much over an inch below. This not only gives an interesting effect of irregularity as to the wall surface, but adds much to the warmth of the house. All the lines of the frame- work are simple to a degree, but the plain- ness is relieved by the widely overhanging eaves and rafters c4 the rnnf. the well-pro- portioned porch. which is balanced by the extension to the rear, the heavy beams which run entirely around the walls with turn of the shingles above and the grouping of the windows.
