Design XXXIV.: Anglo-French villa [no. 2], pp. 251 [i.e. 252]-254
254 hOMESTEAD ARChITECTURE. the drawing-room; it is provided with two good clos- ets K, and a passage to the kitchen 0. From the staircase hall I, a side entrance opens into a lobby L, which contains the private stairway and has a side door to the veranda P. Beyond this is the kitchen M, 15 by 16 feet, a well-lighted apartment fitted up with range, etc.; an out-kitchen N, 12 by 12, completes the extension of back-buildings. The plan of the second floor, shown by fig. 145. corresponds in general arrangement with that of the first. A is an octagonal hail, from which access ]5 had to the chambers B and C, the wardrobe I, the bath-room H, and the front balcony. K denotes the landing of the main stairs, D boudoir, and E a large family chamber, both directly accessible from the landing. M, the landing of the private stairs, is on a level with the half-pace of main stairs, as also is the bath-room G, and the sleeping-room F. CoNsTRucTION.-As will be observed by fig. 143. this design was prepared with a view to being built of stone laid in the manner known as broken range-work, its style and spirit being very favorable to this mode of construction. Slate or shingles of varied patterns would be very appropriate for roof-covering. The (letails of this buildino are very peculiar, and would require the greatest care in the architect to elaborate them properly. No proprietor having any regard for its correct expression or permanent construction would entrust the preparation of the working drawings to an ordinary builder. EsTIMATE.-The cost of this villa, exclusive of the architect's fee, (usually from three to five per. cent. on the building expenses,) will not much exceed $12,000.
