The Problem of Little Homes
ly Arthur CL Clanaea.
T Is a proverbial fact, that tht
average homebuilder comes to
k; architect with a "cream
anretito and a rklm milk
gjST'l pocket book." Ho will want
ammmHtl a colonial manMon wtlh por
ticos, side wicg acd posterior porches
for tbo exterior, with Interior arrange
ment of reception hall, living room, lib
rary, dining room, etc., at least two
bathrooms, with privets lavatory for
each bedroom, tht best grade of hard
wood finish "and then If palb:e," a
brlrk exterior and a tile roof, an for
&0us. lie Is only one of a thousand
such, and still ha wonder v.hy architects
turn prematurely gray.
It teem to be contrary to the laws of
human nature fur a run to keep his
want within h!s means. Ever- man
strives to build a larger home than he
can afford, liven tho man who builds
a three-room bungalow gooa Into debt
before the home Is complete. In order to
have it a little better than he might get
along with, for a while, at least. The
man. who (without persuuloa from hit
trchltect.) voluntarily decides to see
how small ht can build a noma, and
have It fill his needs, would b a curi
osity to tht sverige builder or architect
Tht planning of a small home is more
difficult than tht planning of a larger
oil; to meet the requirement of the
ram family. Not because tha arrange
ment can not be ts convenient, for any
thing built on a large seal ran be built
on a small scale, within a certain rea
sonable minimum, but becauio the aver
age perron ha an exaggerated Idea as to
how much room they need, for living
When sitting In tho parlor, with two
or three friends, the actual space that
I taken up together with tho usual par
lor furniture I not considerable, when
tht dlnlnf room It openly connected with
the parlor, the effect of dlstanc prevent
a cramped or etufty appearance.
In tha dining room, of course, th ,-.e
of tho table, together with tho fact that
a pa snag must b maintained around tho
outside of tho seated guests, establishes a
ten foot minimum for the least dimension.
Tho dining room should bo made a little
longer than It narrowest dimension, to
permit extension of th table on special
occasions. This extra length la often
obtained by projecting a bay, which when
properly designed adds to tho attractive-

"It is of vital importance to keep In

"By playing I do not. mean games. Th
