Arthur C. Clausen, Architect.
HEN designing a home. It has
become customary through
hault with many designers to
consider It as belag for a level
city lot. The grade of the lot
is seldom considered as havlng
anything to dr with the stule or design of
the house, much less dictating what that
stule should be Still. It In a fact that the
grade of a tot and Its situation with refer
ence to its surroundings often has consid
erable to do with the proper planning and
designing of It. Taka for a simple exam
Pie, the mere fact that the house Is on. the
north, aouth, east or west side of the street
this has considerable to do with the ar
rangement of the floor plans. The living
room should, of course. In eneh case face
either east or south, and both ways. If
possible. This is why a house facing the
north Is the hardest to plan. A house on
a corner lot would, of course, be planned
somewhat different than one on an Inside
lot. since It has an open view on two
streets. A northwest corner lost, giving a
south and east exposure to the house, is
therefore the most desirable for a city
The else of a lot, more especially Its
width, has much to do with the arrange
ment of the plan and right here the ever
good advice might be repeated, ''Never
place a good house on a cheap lot." Fay
a little more for your lot and then wait
a year longer If necessary before building.
No matter how complete and comfortable
you build your home, you will In time
become dissatisfied with it If the sur
roundings are not in keeping with It and
your neighbors uninteresting. No . lot
should be less than forty-five feet wide and
fifty would be a better minimum. Be sure
the lot Is wide enough to' get the house
you want on It. .
There la another class of lots found In
surburban or fine residence districts whose
location have much to do with the plan
ning of the home. They can be conven
iently plated In four classes. The lot
which slopes forward to the street, the
lot which has a pronounced slope from
one side to the other, the lot which slopes
downward from the sneet and the com
paratively level lot at the top of a hill,
commanding a beautiful outlook over the
city or surrounding country. The hardest
owner does not express a decided prefer
ence as to what the style of the house
fhould be. for a colonial or gambrel roofed
house would never fit a location of this
kind In a becoming manner. The style
most appropriate Is the English domestic
style, for this style can be more easily
varied and manipulated by a competent de
signer than any other. The Eagllsh have
reduced the appropriateness of a home to
Us location to a fine art and from them we
can often obtain valuable suggestions on
the proper design and location of homes.
An Englishman's home Is not the house
It la the house and garden he needs no
porch for he Uvea in his garden when out
of doors and both are designed together.
For these reasons an English home Is also
appropriate for the other two hillside lo
cations mentioned. When the lot slopes up
from front to rear and the Incline Is not
