HE description of an entire house
tnlRht be covered under the hoad
of Odds and Kudu, since it Is
composed of a srpat many de
tails, each of which should be
carefully studied on its own
merits and then in proportion to all other
features In which it comes in contact. It is
a well known fact that most people put a
great deal more into their home than they
at first had any intention of doing. The
reason for this is not that they make any
radical change In their original ldas, which
might have been buiit for the amount they
Intended to expend, but that they do not
seem to realize that the cost of a house is
composed of an accumulated cost of a great
many different Items, and when they In
crease the cost of each a slight amount, it
meant in the total a considerable additional
expense. For example. In considering the
Interior finish, they may decide to use a
little better grade than they had first con
templated, having found out that it would
only Increase the expense $50. When it
comes to the flooring. In order to obtain a
little better grade than they might get
along with, they add another additional ex
pense of $25. In selecting the plumbing fix
tures, they find that there is a great var
iance in the cost as well as the appearance;
the cost of a bath tub alono varying from
$18 to $125, while $22 pays for a first-class
tub, they decide to put in a $15 tub in order
to have it a little more stylish in appear
ance, without having incroasfd the quality.
So the accummulatlon of these little extra
expenses amount up to a high figure.
There are some things on which it docs
not pay to economize. The painting for
one, plastering being another Item. All ce
ment and masonry work should be of tho
very best, although there can be a consid
erable difference in the cost of face brick
work. A good face brick can be obtained
from prices ranging between $10 per thou
sand and $40 a thousand. While some spp
cial brick, when shipped a long distance
costs more than $40, they are not commonly
used. When brick costs less than $10 a
thousand they are usually considered as
common brick, but even thfSi? when se
lected, make a neat appearing hullding
whtn the color Is pleading. The color of
common brick vary in the different locali
ties, according to the kind of cluy from
which they ure made.
Architects are sometimes criticised for
not using what is known as stock finish,
stock (lo)rs, stock windows, etc., through-

out a house, his drawings frequently call
ing for these Item in sizes and styles re
quiring that thoy be mado to order. The
only thing which makes stock finish
cheaper than that made to order Is that it
la made of a little inferior quality of ma
terials, run In a hasty manner and In a
more convenient time of tho year than
finish prepared for each Individual job.
The result Is that the mouldings are not
always true, knota frequently appear
which mar the appearance, but the most
common failuro Is that the stock frames,
doors, etc., often have very rough places
on the surface. Also In the handling they
are sometimes badly marred and for these
reasons It Is very difficult to make neat
appearing work with stock finish. The
writer recently prepared the plans for a
man who makes tho best part of his liv
ing selling stock frames and finish. H
happened that this same gentleman had,
on several occasions, tried to get tho
writer's consent to substitute stock finish
for specially prepared finish or several
orders that had come through his hands.
When it cume to planning his own home,
however, h. gave orders that the drawings j
and specifications call for specially pre
pared finish, remarked that he wanted no
stock finish or frames in his house. He,
stated laughingly, "Its all right to sell,
but I don't want any of It In miyo." This
Is possibly one of the l'ttle items which
culls for an Increase In cost over what It
mlirht be put In for that Is worth while.
One of the little things frequently over
looked in the planning 'of a home Is the
location of doors and windows with refer
ence to other doors and windows and the
corners of the rooms. Some people. wl!l
bullJ a home without the aid of technical i
experience and never realize until the!
home Is practically complete that their
living room lucks a wall space wide tnoujjh i
for the piano, and that some of the bed
rooms lack wall spaces of proper s zes for
the beds, dressers and other wall furniture.
Wall lights are sometimes so placed that
a door, when standing open, wl l saIiik
analnst It. Then again, doors sometimes;
open so that they stand against other
doors. Sometimes in the arrangement of
bed rooms this cannot be avoided when
it Is a closet door that the hall door stands
against when open, although this Is not
such a serious matter, but would look bet
ter If It has a free wall space to swing
A door in opening Into a room, should
open In such a manner that one stepping
into the room would bo steppMig Into the
main purt of the room and not bo In a
corner and have to swing around the end
of tho door, changing hands on the door
knob meanwhile, while entering a room.
Since windows are a part of the Inside
of tho house, adorning the exterior, they
should he considered In their correct rela
tion to both. While the arrangement of the
Hirst floor Is the most Important, it is us
ually easier to arrange satisfactory thnn
tho socond floor. By having everything ar
ranged satiffactarlly on tho first floor, the
second floor in its arrangement Is super
servant to It as to location of windows,
stairway, chimney, etc. I'm this reason
both floors should be kept In mind and
both planned together, in order to meet
all tho requirements njid get the most sat
isfactory results. To have a window come
In the center of a certain wall space on
the first floor and be directly under a win
dow to a bed room, and not have it take
up desirable wall space for furniture, is
sometimes a difficult matter. Here Is where
the building of a home becomes a science.
I,lke all things which should be arranged
on scientific principles and Include a great
many Items, the working out of all Its de
tails should be left to those who have made
It a study. It Is not a difficult matter to
plan a home, but to plan one containing
the most convenient arrangement and at
tractive appearance that one's means will
afford, having It simple, but tasty and
homelike in every respect, is a very diffi
cult undertaking, especially when one con
siders that every home Is a, problem in It
self, there being very few homes exactly
