9781330602621: Ideal Homes (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Ideal Homes

Why does one house attract and another repel? In the first is an indefinable something called charm. In the second it is lacking. All skilled architects aim for it. Few achieve it. This something, or the lack of it, marks the difference between a mere house and a real home. The house that attracts is the one designed by an architect who has devoted years of thought and study to small homes. Unfortunately few skilled architects specialize in the field of the small home, so that in all our cities and towns are found houses devoid of architectural finish, wasteful of room, and inconveniently arranged - mere boxes pierced with windows.

It is well worth the attention of economical people that we often save all and more than our commission for a client, in material used, and in utilizing every inch of space to the best advantage. Don't be misled on this point - it is not extravagance but economy to build from competent architect's plans.

Our plans speak for themselves. They are the cream of the houses which we have designed in the last dozen years. Many of them have been photographed and reproduced in magazines circulating all over the country. They represent different architectural types and different materials, and every one of them has been worked over until the maximum of comfort and convenience has been secured at a minimum of expense.

We know individual homes, through and through. You will find houses which we have actually built all through the country, and we will gladly give you the names and addresses of the people who occupy them.
