Suggestions Regarding Basement Rooms

No matter v. hat purpuse a basement Is
used for, th walls abould b mad Im

Do extra precaution is necessary, but In
other localttle various damp-proofing
methods must be resorted to.
Assuming that th walla and floor are
damp proof, the basement should then
have good light and ventilation. When
the first floor Is high off the ground thla
Is an easy thing to accomplish. Placing
a home high off of the ground seldom
looks well, and is decidedly out of keep
ing with homes In the bungalow, crafts
man or mission styles now used to such
an extent, these styles calling for an ef
fect as low and broad as possible.
When the building stands low. light and
air can be provided In the basement la
abundance by the use of area windows.
An area window Is a regular sliding sash
window, set with the greater part ot It
below the grade, the ton of the window
being up to the basement celling, while
outside, to keep the earth away and to
admit the light and air, la aa area built
with either brick or concrete walls, the
side walls usually on a Una with the aid
Jamba of th window and th wall parallel
with the window, set out from eighteen
Inches to thirty Inches. The floor of the
area should b several Inches below th
window sill, and I sometimes tnad ot

boy aba was engaged In opening the
shop brought from It a dummy Scotsman
In the act of taking snuff and placed It

ducting the operations, blew a whistle,
and Instantly the boy remained motion

Th dummy of th Scotsman was now

thing for a home to have a den, a place
ta which one can read or write In seclu

where they will not be disturbed by
the servants or members ot the family,

the architect In one eorrser directly con

under the fireplace In tlse living room

the hall and waa Just aa good tu every
