Transcript DESIGN 21. ■—f^aij-r E.LE:v^jiad sipe. e. Le: n/a "riptvl — pJ^_(dLil£A— Design 21—Is a two-story seven-room and attic cottage, suitable for a mechanic's home, and can be erected on a lot of small frontage. Laundry in basement. Cost, $1,600. Design 23—Is a very attractive cottage residence of seven rooms with attic ; cellar under the whole house ; laundry in cellar ; gives a large amount of room for the cost. The first story is designed to be clapboarded and the second story shingled. Cost, $1,300. (See page 1 for Perspective View.) COTTAGE OF MR. TOMLINSON. This handsome little house is near completion for Mr. Tomlinson, and for a compact arrangement of plan cannot be beat. There is a splendid cellar under the whole house, arranged for the storage of fuel and other puruoses ; a well has also been put down in the cellar, which with the cistern supplies an unlimited amount of water at the kitchen sink through the aid of a pump. The attic is very spacious, and will be found very useful as a place for drying clothes, or should it be found necessary at some future time two rooms could be finished off, which would be almost as good sleeping rooms as any in the house. There is but one chimney, which is so placed that it can be used from all the rooms on first floor; the stair-case is also placed in a position to be easy of access from all parts of the house; two doors are placed between the hall and kitchen, a feature which cannot fail to commend itself. The exterior is very striking, the front gable is very handsome, and is a free rendering of what is known as the Queen Anne style af architecture; the front veranda and especially the hood over entrance is very pretty—in fact this is one of the prettily designed cottages which will always attract attention. This cottage is painted Venetian red, trimmed with Indian red, the chamfers, cut and sunk work being picked out in black, making it very effective and showing the detail boldly. The cost is $1,460, and we doubt if there is anyone who can show a prettier house either in arrangement or appearance for the same price. Blessed are they who have homes ! Let every man strive to own a home. Mr. Tomlinson has sold this cottage to good advantage and built larger from our plans. Copyright, 1888, by Palliser, Palliser & f!o., Architects, New York.
