9781495411465: The Grammar of House Planning: Hints on Arranging and Modifying Plans of Cottages, Street-Houses, Farm-Houses, Villas, Mansions, and Out-Buildings

An excerpt from the PREFACE:

THIS work is designed to meet a desideratum which has been long and much felt in practical literature. It purposes to place before the reader a wide variety of plans, ranging from that adapted to the simplest COTTAGE and STREET HOUSE, up to the more pretentious COUNTRY VILLA, and TOWN MANSION. The design or scope of the work comprehends, however, not merely the giving of a series of plans, or suggestions for plans, but also occasional alternative arrangements adapted to one and the same plan; showing how, by altering not only the relative position of the apartments, but parts of the apartments themselves, as position of doors, windows, and fireplaces, certain disadvantages in the one plan may be obviated, and more convenient and more economical arrangements obtained in the other. This antithetical or contrastive mode of treatment, the reader will at once perceive, possesses advantages of a thoroughly practical nature; but which, obvious as they appear when alluded to, have not yet—the editor believes—formed a systematic feature in any work treating on House Arrangement. In addition to plans of houses of various grades, designs for Out-buildings and Stables-are also given. These will be useful as affording hints to those who contemplate keeping, at their Country Houses or Suburban Villas, a small herd of dairy cattle, or a stud of horses. To serve in some measure as practical hints to the Student of Architecture, and to House Proprietors, as affording suggestions for the style of decoration they would like to adopt, a series of examples are given comprising Doors, Windows, Chimneys, &c.

Still further to render the work practically useful in all departments, brief Essays are given on several important departments of Arrangement, Construction, and Internal Conveniences, as arrangement of Apartments, Ventilation, Lighting, Drainage, Aspect, Soil, and Site, &c. In these, it is believed, some hints of a useful and novel character will be found worthy the attention of the Reader. The work is not designed exclusively for the purpose of conveying the opinions of the Compiler on the various points of which its pages treat, but as a medium also for giving the opinions of others, whose position in the world of Science and Art entitles them to be considered as authorities. To embody this idea the Compiler has, therefore, carefully selected from a wide range of authorities, opinions which cannot fail to be otherwise than useful to the practical man. The sources of these being generally acknowledged in the body of the work, it is unnecessary here to give them in full; the Compiler cannot, however, omit here noting his special obligations to the pages of the " Builder," the "Building News," and to various papers read before the Professional Societies. If the Reader will derive as much profit and pleasure from their perusal as the Compiler has done while selecting them for republication in the pages of his little work, his labour will not have been in vain.

At the same time, while reproducing these opinions of others, the Compiler has not refrained from giving those of his own on the various subjects discussed in its pages. These will easily be distinguished from the other portions of selected matter; and for what they are worth the Reader must take them. It is right here, however, to say, that much of the matter embodying these opinions of the Compiler, formed part of a series of Lectures delivered by him to the members of an important public educational institution....
