INTRODUCTORY 

AMERICA may well be proud of her large and beautiful homes and 
of the architects who designed them. The greater number of small 
homes in all parts of the country, however, arc with few exceptions, 
almost uniformly lacking in any serious attempt at convenience of arrange- 
ment i ■!- beauty i »f design. 

The reason for this is apparent; when a person decides to build a home 
of elaborate proportions, he feels the need of a competent architect. He 
has the mean- to employ one, and he usually endeavors to engage the 
services of the best he can obtain. 

On the other hand, the man of moderate means, who can afford only 
a medium priced home, realizes that it is only through the most rigid 
economy that he can hope to build a home with the necessary rooms, 
finished in the simplest style possible. 

Probably the majority of men in these circumstances determine at the 
outsel that they will build without the services of an architect. The archi- 
tect- themselves are largely responsible for this state of affairs, too, for 
many i>i the prominent men in the profession avoid rather than seek com- 
missions for building small houses. 

This class of work, as a rule, does not yield a revenue commensurate 
with the work it involves. The labor in making drawings and specifications 
is nearly as great on a small dwelling as on a large one. with the fee vary- 
ing in proportion to the cost. Therefore, the architects the country over, 
have established a sliding scale of charges which calls for a higher per- 
centage "ii the smaller class of work. 

Undoubtedly, however, the chief cause of the non-employment of an 
architect bv the prospective small-home builder, and consequently the lack 
of real architectural merit which is so universally apparent in these small 
houses, is due to a misconception on the part of the man who is about to 
build. 

II.- is mistaken in thinking that he will economize by planning the house 
himself, giving loose instructions to a contractor, or in attempting to build 
from cheap plans furnished by the contractor-carpenter himself. 

In thinking that he can really secure the sort of home he wants, and 
an architect's fee. be i- committing a folly, that he will invariably 
realize, to his everlasting regret, when it is too late. 

I lie man who purposely refrains from availing himself of competenl 
technical skill in the designing of his home, is not only going to have a less 
convenient, less attractive, and l^s well-built house, but he is also going 
to spend nvre money in getting it. than he can possibly save in a moderate 
charge for a well made set of working plans. 

( >nc may ask. what i- the minion of such a book as this, if the personal 
taste and prejudice of the owner of the prospective house is to be shown in 
the home itself. The answer is, that it will help the owner to know more 
definitely what he does want, what other people have found desirable in a 
home, and what, in a general way, constitute- a well balanced, economically 
constructed, livable house. 



BUNGALOWS, COTTAGES, RESIDENCES 



The many plans in this book will give you a pretty definite impression 
of what your home should be. 

If this book can suggest to the layman what the many possibilities are, 
for his future home, and he will order a set of my plans that best suits his 
requirements, I feel sure that he will ever after be numbered among the 
thousands of my alreadv satisfied clients. 



Some General Remarks. 

My plans are carefully made and figured ; drawn to *4 i n - scale and 
specifications fully written covering the building in every detail. 

In selecting one of my plans do not let a minor detail, such as the 
change of a door or window from one location to another influence you not 
to use any particular plan that you otherwise like. These little changes 
are easily and quickly made and will cost you nothing. 

My estimate of costs are based upon prices actually paid within the 
past 18 months for constructing the houses found in this book. I believe 
it is only fair to my prospective clients to treat this matter of cost honestly, 
and I advise him, (when comparing my estimate with others, many of 
whom estimate 50% too low) not to be misled in thinking that I have not 
given the matter of cost painstaking consideration. The prices found herein 
are always exclusive of heating and plumbing, as these items are liable 
to vary considerably. 

The heating plant, for an eight room house, a hot air furnace for $165, 
in my judgment, would be very satisfactory, but steam or hot water would 
cost 'from $250 to $350. 

The plumbing for an average house could be put in economically for 
$250 or any amount over that you wish to pay. 

I wish to state that my plans are original and copyrighted and no one 
has a right to use one without my consent. If you see one of the plans 
contained in this book without my name you may know for a certainty 
that it is only a poor copy. 

Place your confidence in me and order plans. I will make a special 
personal effort to see that every one of my clients gets just what he wants, 
and in just the way he wants it. I believe I can satisfy the most exacting 
tastes, if you will give me the opportunity. 

A Few Suggestions To My Patrons. 

There are many things to be said about planning and building a home; 
in fact, enough to more than fill this book without any illustrations, but the 
author will briefly mention a few of the really important points to be con- 
sidered when building. 

There has been in the past an almost universal disregard to points that 
are very helpful and useful to the builder of a home but if the reader will 
carefully study the following- suggestions and be guided by them he will 
be more than repaid for his time. 



GLENN L. SAXTON. ARCHITECT. MINNEAPOLIS 



Two Examples of Houses 




The Original Plan 

First of all. never build a home without a complete set of plans and 
specifications. The two illustrations on this page will show at a glance 
what happened to the man who thought that his contractor was competent 
to build his heme without an architect's plans. 

These two houses built in the same city are just one block apart. The 
first shows the house built according to one of my stock plans and specifi- 
cations which cost the owner just $35. 

The second illustration shows the house built by a man who attempted 
to save the price of the architect's plans, and just compare the results! 
The imitation house is all out of proportion, the roof is too steep, and the 
brackets which support the cornice 
look like toothpicks. Compare the 
bays on the front gable in the 2nd 
story. On the imitation house the 
bay is all out of proportion and dis- 
figures the looks of the house as 
much as a wart on the nose of a 
beautiful woman. This may be a 
homely comparison but it is none 
mphatic. The sleeping porch 
on the front corner of the imitation 
, instead of being 7 or 8 feet 
wide as the original plans show it, 
nly 3 feet wide. It certainly is 
not ornamental and is of no practical 
use whatever and is merely a place 
for snow and ice to gather in the 
winter time. The house is the same The Imitation Plan 




BUNGALOWS, COTTAGES, RESIDENCES 



width but it looks to be only half as wide, for the reason that everything 
is out of proportion and was not properly planned before the contract was 
let to the builder. 

This imitation house cost more money than the house correctly built, 
and owing to its hideous appearance, faulty planning and construction, its 
owner would have to take $1200 to $1500 less for it than would the owner 
of the first. This is certainly a striking illustration of a man being "penny 
wise and pound foolish." The man who purchased his plans is delighted 
with his home and has had numerous opportunities to sell at a good profit 
while the other man is dissatisfied, never has had an opportunity to sell 
and has even offered his home at a sacrifice. This is an experience, unfor- 
tunately, which thousands of home builders have had. It is for you to 
decide which class you wish to join. 

Free Plans. 

Never go to the man for plans who calls himself "Architect and Builder" 
or "Home Builders," who advertises to furnish you with FREE plans if 
you will allow him to build your home. There is a reason for his gener- 
osity. Did you ever really get anything for nothing? 

It takes time to plan a home and make proper specification and so- 
called home building companies are not philanthropic enough to do this 
for you without lining their own pockets at the same time. When you 
stop to think of it, you can not expect them to, as the plans and specifica- 
tions are worth something, depending of course, upon the size of the house. 
Their plans are invariably incomplete, specifications made wordy and oft- 
times purposely confusing, frequently calling for the poorest grades of ma- 
terial. So don't you see, in this way they can take advantage of you by 
charging first class prices for work done with third and fourth class ma- 
terials. This is the way you get your plans "for nothing." I know as an 
absolute fact that homebuilding institutions that furnish free plans make 
a profit of from $600 to $1,000 on every house they build. Would it not be 
a good idea for you to employ a competent architect to make your plans, 
and have the assurance that you were not paying an excessive profit for 
your home? 

Liens. 

If you have never done any building, you can hardly realize what it 
means to keep clear of liens. The lien laws are most unfair to the builder 
of a home in most states. Any firm wdio has furnished material, such as 
cement, plaster, lumber, mill work, etc., in fact any material which has 
gone into the construction, can file a lien on your property and compel you 
to pay for it a second time if your contractor has not settled his accounts for 
the material entering into the construction of your house, and unless 
you have taken the precaution to compel your contractor to furnish you with 
receipted bills for all this material from the concerns who have supplied 
it you are running a great risk. I have known of hundreds of people who, 
after having paid their contractor in full, for his contract, later discover 
that there were from $1,800 to $2,000 in liens filed against their homes which 
necessitated their paying for their homes practically twice. 

By a little precaution you can overcome all of these difficulties and 
make the building of a home a pleasure instead of a hardship. 



GLENN L. SAXTON, ARCHITECT, MINNEAPOLIS 



Have a complete set of plans and specifications and insist upon the con- 
tractor following them absolutely. 

Insist upon a Surety Bond from the contractor for protection against 
lien- which will protect you in case the contractor fails to pay any of his 
bills. Do not make any changes in the plans after letting the contract 
that will invariably make a loop hole for the Bonding Company to crawl 
out of, and finally do not let a contractor furnish you with "Free plans.'* 
1 1 you do, you will certainly pay dearly fur the plans you thought were free. 

The architect has spent years of time and study and thousands of dol- 
lars for his experience and for the small price he asks for his plans you 
are receiving the benefits of all his experience. Now if you will only abide 
by these suggestions, your homebuilding will be safeguarded and a pleasure 
from start to hnish.

A Few Illustrations and Suggestions In 
Home Planning. 

In selecting a plan always remember that every plan can be reversed 
for you without any extra charge. By reversing it, any plan can be made 
to lit an east, south, west or north exposure. Reversing the plan makes 
the position of the rooms exactly opposite from the way they are placed in 
the illustration shown in this book. 

Any plan illustrated in this book can have the addition of a sun room or 
a sleeping porch added to it if desired, for the nominal additional cost of 
$5, the same to be drawn on first or second story plan, with slip sheet 
attached to be placed in specifications.

Living Rooms. 

Our first illustrations of interiors are of living rooms. We always plan 
for an abundance of light and ventilation in the living room. We do not 
forget to leave wall space large enough for a piano or other large piece of 
furniture. Stairways are always carefully planned to have a wide approach, 
and care is taken to have ample headroom, wide treads and risers just the 
right height. If the living room has a fireplace, you may rest assured it 
is designed by an architect, who understands every essential of this im- 
portant adjunct to the livable home. The fire place should have a separate 
flue, never less than 8x12 inches. Insist upon a damper with handle on the

face of tile or brick, to control the draft. The fireplace is the grandest thing 
that can be planned for a large living room, as it gives the best ventilation 
that a room can possible have, in addition to its rosy comfy glow in the 
winter evenings.

BUNGALOWS, COTTAGES, RESIDENCES 




The Dining room, tasteful and handily arranged. 
Dining Room. 

A dining room should always be well lighted and ample wall space 
should be left for built-in or portable buffets, sideboards or china closets. 
Paneled wainscoting and beamed ceilings greatly enhance the beauty of this 
room. The illustration above shows a well proportioned dining room. 

The illustration below shows a less pretentious dining room and is 
charming on account of its simplicity. The walls are paneled and lend 
themselves nicely to the decorator's art. 




A well appointed little Dining room 



GLENN L. SAXTON. ARCHITECT, MINNEAPOLIS 



The stairway is really one of 
the nn >st conspicuous features in 
a home. It can make or mar the 
most beautiful surroundings and 
consequently should be given 
special attention by the architect. 

The properly constructed stair- 
way must be worked out on some 
of the same principles as a prob- 
lem in arithmetic. The building 
cif the stairway therefore is an 
art a> well as a science. 

There are numerous well 
denned rules governing the build- 
of a stairway and it' any of these 
rule- are not observed, the result 
shows a lack of architectural 
-kill at a srlance. 




The Stairway is the principal thoroughfare 

in the home — it should be as 

attractive as possible. 




A Sun room which is delightful place the year round. 

Sun Room. 

The sunroom is a feature that has become very popular with the build- 
ing public in the last four or live years and is adapted to most any style of 
house. It is really the most valuable asset of the entire home on account 
of its light, sunshine and fresh air. It is converted into ;i pleasant porch in 
the summer time and is the most delightful room throughout the winter, 
being supplied with heat the same as the rest of the house. Having a sun 
room, one can dispense with a large piazza on one or two sides of the 
house which darken the rooms and shut out the sunshine. In northern 
climates these outside porches can only he used about three months out 
of the year while a sun room is a joy throughout the twelve months.

A Restful Chamber 

The designing of a chamber should be carefully studied out: It should 
be the least pretentious and most harmonious room in the house. Simplic- 
ity should be its keynote. 

The vital things to be considered are : windows on two sides of the 
chamber for ventilation, abundance of wall space for double or twin beds, 
dressers, dressing tables, etc. No chamber should be designed without 
ample space for the bed to be moved to at least two positions when 
desired. 




Here is a sleeping porch that any modest home can possess. 
Sleeping Porch. 

A well ventilated sleeping porch is the pet hobby of the author. The 
deeping porch in our estimation, is one of the best investments that a 



GLENN L. SAXTON. ARCHITECT, MINNEAPOLIS 



13 



homebuilder can make. It will discount the services of the best physician 
in the city even if he is employed by the year. The secret is that you 
breath the fresh pure air during your sleeping hours, which is worth 
than any apothecary'- pills in the world. A sleeping porch is one thing 
every house, little or big, should have. 




An ideal kitchen 
The Kitchen. 

An ideal kitchen is the one thing which every woman desires, and I 
regret to say, so few of them really possess. A modern housewife's idea 
of a kitchen has changed radically from the ideas of her mother's time. A 
few years ago the kitchen was the largest room in the house and compelled 
the housewife or maid to take thousands of unnecessary steps, to say noth- 
ing of the extra elbow grease necessarily used every week in scrubbing 
such a large expanse of floor. 

The modern kitchen of today is small, compact, has a place for every- 
thing and everything in its place. The modern architect gives as much 
thought to the planning of the kitchen as to any other room in the house. 
He provides the most convenient place for the sink, usually under a window, 
with proper provision for the drain board. There is always sufficient space 
allowed for the range and, in fact, for every other fixture for this room, not 
forgetting the all-important refrigerator. Proper location for lights, outlets 
and receptacles for gas or electric iron, fans, etc., even to a wrought iron 
ventilating pipe for hood over the range t<> carry off the odors from the 
cooking, all receive his painstaking attention. 



BUNGALOWS, COTTAGES, RESIDENCES 




Bathroom. 

A simple and sani- 
tary bathroom is a 
luxury which is now 
within the reach of 
everyone, in this mo- 
dern day of home 
planning. Ventila- 
tion and light are the 
most essential points 
to be considered in 
every bathroom, re- 
gardless of its size. 
I could write several 
chapters about the 
bathroom but space 
forbids. There is no 
part of the home 

. .. where such wonder- 

A simple, sanitary bathroom. r , . . , , , 

* ' J ful strides have been 

made in late years as in the equipment of the bathroom. It is gratifying 
to know that the desirable and beautiful fixtures which were once an un- 
heard of extravagance are now within the reach of the modest homebuilder. 
Beautiful enamel iron tubs, vitreous bowls, modern noiseless closets and 
sanitary metal wall cabinets with mirrored doors are luxuries fit for a 
potentate but these are found in every well constucted home today. 

Closet. 

A real modern closet is "Mi- 
lady's" delight. Not the little 
stuffy affairs, jammed in just 
anywhere, but closets of ample 
size containing hat boxes, 
large drawers for gowns and 
skirts and everything convenient- 
ly arranged. A few years ago a 
good wife no doubt indulged in 
some very un-Christian like 
thoughts when she was forced to 
grope around in the dark closet 
for her favorite gown or slippers. 
Now when she wishes to select 
her gown, the electric light in the 
closet is automatically turned on 
when she opens the closet door, 
and automatically turned off when 
she closes it. 

There are doubtless 1000 more 
home conveniences the writer 
could describe had he the space. 




" ' '

(loud closet space is invaluable. Most of the things mentioned, however, 
are within your reach and you can have them at a small cost if you will 
employ an architect who make- a specialty of designing homes, 
features described, plus many we have not mentioned are all incorp 
in every set i if i iur plans. 




A Modern Laundry 

Fifty years ago, Monday was always called "Blue Monday" on account 
of the confusion and gloom it generally cast over the entire household 
when the tubs and steaming boiler were brought into the kitchen for the 
week's washing. 

Today, if you will allow us to design your new home, we will incor- 
porate a laundry in the basement that will transform "Blue Monday." 
drudgery, into "Sunny Monday" a day of pleasure to which the housewife 
will look forward with as much anticipation as the Master of the house 
looks forward to Sunday. She will admit that wash day is a pleasure in- 
stead of a burden. 

She may have a power washer, electric or steam dryer, gas or electric 
mangle for ironing the flat pieces and a gas or electric iron for the finest 
linens or lingerie and best of all, and electric iron to keep her cool and 
comfortable while doing this ironing. These features can all be incorpor- 
ated in your new home if you let us plan it for you. 



16 BUNGALOWS, COTTAGES, RESIDENCES 



A Few Instructions To My Prospective Clients. 

When ordering plans, state correctly the number of the plan desired and 
as to whether it is to be as shown in the book, or "reversed." This means a 
transposition of the rooms from one side to the other. I will blue-print any 
set of plans "reversed" without extra charge. 

All orders for plans must be accompanied by a certified check, P. O. or 
express money order. Orders that are not will be sent by express C. O. D., 
with the privilege of examination. 

Working Drawings. 

A full set of working plans comprises the floor plans of all stories drawn 
to one-quarter inch scale, with all necessary notes and figured dimensions 
plainly marked on same, four elevations and sections showing the method of 
construction, size of timbers, etc., as well as all necessary interior and ex- 
terior details worked out to scale and full size. Also an original set of 
typewritten specifications, embracing all materials and labor required for 
the completion of building, masonry, carpenter work, painting, wiring, etc. 

One full set of blue-prints and one copy of specifications will be under- 
stood to complete an order. Any additional copies will be charged for at 
the rate of five dollars for a full set of bine-prints and specifications. 

Alterations. 

Such minor alterations as changing the position of a door or window, or 
slight interior rearrangement not affecting the outside walls or outside door 
and window openings, will be made without additional charge. By inserting 
a slip-sheet in the specifications we can remove any possibility of there being 
a lot of bills of extras after the building is completed. 

If you care to lay out your own idea of a floor plan, make a rough sketch 
of same and send it to me, together with the number of the design you like 
best, and I will make you a special price on original plans. 

Bill of Materials. 

Upon request I will furnish a bill of materials for any design in the book 
for $5. But my plans and specifications are so prepared that estimates for 
lumber, mill work, etc., can be made directly from them, without going to 
the unnecessary expense of a bill of material. In my mind, the only person 
to make such a bill, is the contractor or builder who is going to put the 
material into the building. He can follow his own bill with far greater 
economy than one made by some one else. 

Any person who has purchased a plan of me, may feel at perfect liberty 
to write or call upon me during the progress of his work, for information or 
advice pertaining to the construction of same. I make a special aim to have 
my clients so well pleased with my plans, that they will be willing to recom- 
mend me to their friends who contemplate the building of a home. I do 
not design houses exclusively, but plan buildings of all characters, and will 
be pleased to give you prices on such plans.

New England Colonial Design — No. 966 

Cost to build, $3,800. 

This is from actual figures after this house has been duplicated in one of the largest cities 
in the United States four times. This plan is unique as it is the only plan designed up to the 
present time that can be adapted to five distinct styles of architecture without changing the 
doors or windows, or materially affecting the general plan in any way. We have this house made 
up as an old New England Colonial, Craftsman style, and English half-timber. The above three 
as shown. The size of the house is 26 feet wide and 28 feet deep over the main part. There is 
a sun room on the side which is 10 feet" 6 inches wide, thus making a frontage of 36 feet 6 inches. 
Necessarily this calls for at least a 40 or 50 foot lot, or one wider still is even more appropriate 
for this home. This is such a good design that it is really unnecessary to write a word of description 
as the floor plans illustrated shows a home that is complete. There is not one wish that one 
thousand different home lovers have ever expressed but what are all included in this little home. 
The sun room and the sleeping porch in ten years time are going to be the only kind of piazzas 
that will be put in homes 1 , as in a cold climate a piazza around the front and sometimes around 
the entire sides keeps out the sunshine from all the rooms and is only livable three months out 
of the twelve at the most. Now, with sun room and a sleeping porch which are all sashed in, in

case it gets too cool or starts to rain, you can put the windows down and raise the bottom one 
up and you can still sit on the piazza just the same, either in sunshine or rain, or snow. In your 
sun room we put in a radiator so that they are livable for 365 days in the year. 

There is a full basement under this entire house. First story 9 feet, second story 8 feet. 
These heights are in the clear. First story is finished throughout in birch with birch floors 
throughout both first and second stories. Red oak or gum could be used if one desired. The 
second story is finished in pine to paint, with birch doors to stain mahogany color to give the 
old Colonial interior finish for the chambers. Complete set of plans and specifications for $35 of 
any one of these three designs. Will blue print the plan either side up so as to fit the lot that 
you have.

A Homelike Bungalow — No. 956 

The bungalow would grace any of the avenues of California. The gable roof, run- 
ning parallel with the street extends out over the Broad piazza, and is broken by two 
small dormers. The wide cornice is supported by heavy sawed brackets. The ex- 
terior has a massive and substantial appearance and yet suggests comfort. Width 
40 feet, depth 32 feet. Lumberman's home at Pierre, S. D. 

The arrangement of the room is homelike. The large open fire-place suggests a hearty 
welcome to the visitor. The kitchen is not large, but makes up for lack of room in 
the many conveniences provided. The grade door and cellarway are at the rear. 
There are two bed rooms and a bath in the first story, with two large bedrooms in the 
second story. The living and dining rooms can be prettily finished in gum and the 
balance of the first story in natural birch, and the second story in white enamel pine. 
Birch floors are preferable. In all, this plan possesses a great deal of merit and 
excels in home comforts and conveniences. Cost to build, $3,800. Complete set of 
plans and specifications for $25.

A Modest Bungalow — No. 955 



This design and its door plan are exceedingly interesting and will bear considerable 
study. 




The living room, dining room and kitchen are 
conveniently arranged on one side of the house 
and the two bed rooms, with closets and bath 
between, on the opposite side, making a house 
that can be taken care of with the least amount 
of labor. 

The dining room has a built-in sideboard and 
a coat closet. The kitchen makes up what it 
lacks in size in its practical arrangement and 
the many conveniences offered: The range and 
sink and nearness to the dining room and the 
drain board and moulding table under the win- 
dows. The refrigerator is so located that it is 
easily accessible from the dining room and yet 
can be iced without having the ice man enter 
the kitchen. There is a combination cellar 
stairway and outside entrance.

seven feet high and the first story is nine feet. 
The floors throughout are of birch and the finish 
either gum wood or oak. Cost to build for $1,900.

Design— No. 851 

The residence design is that of a much more pretentions building being 
a full two story house which you will discover by examining the exterior 
and floor plans carefully, but the double pitched gable in front really gives 
the effect of a cottage exterior. There is also an unusually large attic which 
can be used for amusement or a billiard room. 

27 feet wide and 28 feet deep over the dining room side. The rooms are 
nicely arranged there being a library in front, which can be used as a 
music room, den, or even a bedroom, if one desires, by closing it off with 
a sliding door. There could be a door cut through from this room into 
the hall, so as to be able to go into the second story without going through 
the living room. The stairs lead to the attic from the hall, and in the 
first story there is a combination so that you can go from the kitchen as 
well as from the front way. First story finished in gum or red oak, second 
story pine to paint. This house will cost $3,200 to build. Complete set 
of plans and specifications for the sum of $25.

many are desired. However, the estimated cost does not include the

A Typical California Home Adapted to Northern Climate — No. 933 

Width 32 feet, depth 28 feet over the main part. This is an example erf 
the type of houses which are being- built so extensively in California, the 
land of beautiful homes. Its popularity is undoubtedly due to its beautiful 
exterior. The roof has an open cornice supported by sawed and dressed 
rafter ends, and a single low dormer. The arrangement of the rooms is 
ideal. An economical feature is the position of the chimney which provides 
a flue for the fire-place, one for the heating plant and kitchen range, a com- 
bination which eliminates an extra chimney and saves probably $120. The 
first story is 9 feet high and the second S 1 / feet. Birch floors. First story 
is finished in gum or red oak and second in white enameled pine with birch 
doors. Cost to build, $3,250. Complete set of plans and specifications

Your House Can Have Fire Proof Walls 

At About the Cost of Wood if You Build of 




Load Bearing Tile 

(Licensed under the Wilson System Bearing Wall Construction, 
United States and foreign patents pending and allowed.) 

Fire resisting construction has proved beyond a doubt that it pays even when it 
costs more. If you build any house in this book of DENISON LOAD BEARING 
TILE, you will get fire-proof walls at just about the cost of ordinary firsl-class wood 
construction ; sometimes a trifle more, and sometimes even less. A wooden house 
covered with metal lath and stucco costs the same or more than a house built with 

DENISON LOAD BEARING TILE walls. 

Built of DENISON LOAD BEARING TILE a house would be warmer in 
winter and cooler in summer, and your insurance would be less —besides an added 
safety from fire, which no amount of insurance can give you. Your house would be 
absolutely moisture proof and absolutely rat and vermin proof. 

The department of Buildings of the city of Minneapolis has proved by actual 
test that DENISON LOAD BEARING TILE will withstand a pressure of over one 
hundred and forty thousand (140,000) pounds per square foot of bearing surface. 
That means that a DENISON TILE wall is stronger than a brick wall, yet costs prac- 
tically the same as wood. Tests showing the same results have also been made by 
State Testing Laboratories of Iowa, Wisconsin and other states, but of course the best 
proof of all is the satisfactory use of the tile in hundreds of buildings, great and small. 

DENISON LOAD BEARING TILE walls may be faced with stucco (or brick 
veneer if desired) without furring and lathing, or other treatment of any sort. When 
used for barns, outbuildings, factories, etc., the tiles are made with smooth outside 
faces, and need not be finished in any way. 

We have said enough to make a wise homebuilder want to know more. Take our ad- 
vice and Write us NOW — before you go any further with your building plans. You '11 be sur- 
prised to see what can be done with DENISON TILE.

BUNGALOWS, COTTAGES RESIDENCES 




Owing to the advanced 
price of lumber maybe some 
of our readers would prefer 
to build a brick house. The 
two half tones show a view 
from the front of the house, 
also one at the end, and the 
floor plans will certainly 
speak for themselves. This 
is a typical and severe old 
New England colonial style, 
this being the birthplace of 
our beautiful colonial work. 
The first story is finished in 
white oak and gum ; the second story of white enamel, full basement under 
the entire house. First story is 9 feet 6 inches, second story 8 feet 6 inches. 
The size of the house on the ground is 51 ft. 10 in. x 34 ft. 4 in. Write 
for information. Cost to build, $10,000. Complete set of plans and specific- 
ations for $75.

man sideboard mark the bungalow style of interior treatment. The first 
story is finished in red oak, which can be beautifully treated with dark 
stains, and the second story is finished in Washington fir, gum or red oak.

Georgian Colonial Design — No. 966 
Evolution in Architecture in this Practical Home 

Cost to build, $3,800. 

This is from actual figures after this house has been duplicated in one of the largest cities in 
the United States four times. This plan is unique as it is the only plan designed up to the present 
time that can be adapted to five distinct styles of archiecture without changing the doors or win- 
dows, or materially affecting the general plan in any way. We have this house made up as an 
old New England Colonial, Craftsman style, and English half-timber. The size of the house is 26 
feet wide and 28 feet deep over the main part. There is a sun room on the side which is 10 feet 
6 inches wide, thus making a frontage of 36 feet 6 inches. Necessarily this calls for at least a 40 
or 50 foot lot, or one wider still is even more appropriate for this home. The floor plans show a 
home that is complete. There is not one wish that a thousand different home lovers have ever 
expressed but what are all included in this little home. The sun room and the sleeping porch in ten 
years time are going to be the only kind of piazzas that will be put in homes, as in a cold climate a 




These floor plans can be reversed to fit the two exteriors on opposite page.

Spanish Mission Design— No. 966 
See the floor plans on opposite page that go with these two beautiful exteriors, 
piazza around the front and sometimes around the entire sides keeps out the sunshine from all the 
rooms and is only livable three months out of the twelve at the most. Now with sun room and a sleep- 
ing porch which are all sashed in, in case it gets too cool or starts to rain, you can put the windows 
down and raise the bottom one up and you can still sit on the piazza just the same, either in sun- 
shine or rain, or snow. In your sun room we put in a radiator so that they are livable for 365 days 
in the year. 

There is a full basement under this entire house. First story 9 feet, second story 8 feet. These 
heights are in the clear. First story is finished throughout in birch with birch floors throughout 
both first and second stories. Gum-wood or Georgian pine could be used if one desired. The 
second story is finished in pine to paint, with birch doors to stain mahogany color to give the old 
Colonial interior finish for the chambers. Complete set of plans and specifications for $35 of any 
one of these designs. Will blue print the plan either side up so as to fit the lot that you have.

111 GUM 



AMERICA'S FINEST HARDWOOD 

IDEAL (ami ECONOMICAL) 
FOR SMALL RESIDENCES 




WHEN RED GUM IS USED IN COSTLY PUBLIC BUILDINGS (for interior finish 

and doors) it must be acknowledged to be the finest hardwood grown in America ' 'for 
more modest uses. " In beauty it stands on a par with Circassian Walnut and Mahogany. 
It is used throughout the United States not only in large and small residences and for 
fine furniture, but for the most elaborate woodwork of many of the great hotels, office 
and public buildings in the big cities. 

YOU CAN AFFORD RED GUM FOR YOUR OWN HOME, 

for, you will be surprised to learn, it costs only a fraction of the price of the expensive hardwoods 
which are its only competitors. No matter what other wood you may have thought of using for 
Interior Trim, you will find that you can do better by using RED GUM. 

Write us about Red Gum. We will tell you how you can easily get it for your home. We will answer all 
your questions, and will send you pictures and general information of the highest value. Just try it. Write us fully.

The sun room and sleeping porches are now a permanent part of the

that a housewife has ever desired in the way of convenience. There is

shown plainly on the two floor plans. The size of the house is 26 feet 
wide and 28 feet deep over the main part. Full basement, first story 9 
feet, second story 8 feet. Birch or maple floors throughout. First story 
finish birch, red gum or red oak, second story pine to finish. Cost to build,

You have no idea of the beautiful coloring

expensive as paint, twice as handsome, and 
the only Stains made of Creosote, "the best

YES, THE WINTERS ARE 
COLD AND LONG 

but people living in homes heated by a "MUELLER" 
Boiler never have cause to complain of the cold because 
every portion of each room is 
thoroughly and uniformly 
heated in all kinds of weather. 
Many thousands in use. 




WATER BOILER 



STEAM BOILER 



The small amount of fuel these boilers require is surprising — The scientific and practical 
construction of the "MUELLER" Boiler is responsible. Its appetite for consuming fuel 
is very light. — Its power to deliver heat is great. 

Investigate the "MUELLER." Some of your friends are using it. Ask them.

New Roofing Discovery 

Works Wonders in Beautifying Home! 
For the Simplest and Grandest Homes 

Charming Moorish beauty and dignity of appearance of Metal Spanish Tile gives an air of dis- 
tinction to the home graced by this wonderful new and practically indestructible roofing. 

It has taken home builders of America by storm, for it is the modernization of the wonderfully 
beautiul roofs of historic Spanish edifices. 

The art of making this roofing, left behind by the fleeing Moors driven out of Spain centuries ago, 
until 1910 could not be made practical for the modern home, despite its alluring beauties. 

After years of experiment we have hit the solution. That is why today we are able to offer 
American homes the amazing attractiveness of 

Metal Spanish Tile Roofing 

Its scores of vital, practical advantages cost no more 
than common roofing, yet mean tremendous economy 
— it needs no repairs and outlasts several ordinary roofs 
because of its practically indestructible metal construc- 
tion. 

It is absolutely wind, weather, storm, fire and lightn- 
ing proof. 

Easy to apply. No soldering, no special tools — any 
ordinary mechanic can apply it. 

Interlocking system by which tiles dovetail into each 
other makes the roof absolutely water tight and pro- 
vides for expansion and contraction perfectly — summer 
and winter. 

It is guaranteed non-breakable. 

Home Builders — Simply send us today the dimen- 
sions of your building and we will tell you by return 
mail exact cost of all material. 

Our new 1913 book on beautifying the modern Amer- 
ican home by use of Metal Spanish Tile is yours for 
the asking. A postal will bring it. i

Florida Plantation Home — No. 794 

Here is a typical Florida home, designed for an orange and grape fruit grower in 
Central Florida, but is well adapted to a summer home in any latitude. This is a plan 
which is well worth studying. The house is large on the ground, the rooms are conveniently 
arranged of good dimensions and airy. 

Note the generous screened in piazza with the four rooms opening onto it with double 
French doors. Observe the two hospitable fire places. The broad stairway leads from the 
lower piazza to a sleeping porch above. There is another large sleeping porch at the 
opposite end of second floor with two very large chambers between. 

This house was planned for a hill side overlooking a lake. The entrance to piazza could 
be in front, if desired. 

The interior finish is patent wall board, put on with thin panels. Finish could be dull 
paint or stain as desired. 

Cost to build as a summer home, $1,800 to $2,400. Complete plans and specifications, $25.

The Wonder House — No. 793 

We have this plan made up as an old New England colonial, English half timber, 
Spanish mission and - Georgia colonial, besides Craftsman, as shown above. The size of 
the house is twenty-six feet wide and twenty-eight feet deep under the main part. There 
is a sun room on the side which is ten feet six inches wide, thus making a frontage of 
thirty-six feet six inches. Necessarily this calls for at least a forty-five or fifty foot lot, 
or one wider still is even more appropriate for this home. Cost to build, $3,900. 

There is a full basement under this entire house. First story nine feet, second story 
eight feet in the clear. First story is finished throughout in birch or red gum and birch 
floors in first and second stories. The second story is finished in pine to paint, with birch 
to stain mahogany color to give the old colonial interior finish for the chambers. 

Complete plans and specifications, $35.00.

The Simplest Home — 
The Tiniest Cottage — 

Can Now Afford Electric Lights 



Comfortable evenings demand good illumination. For 
reading or working at night you require a steady bril- 
liant light, and particularly where there are children, a 
light that is SAFE. 

Mazda electric lighting is soft — white — the nearest ap- 
proach to daylight. Mazda electric lamps give nearly 
three times as much light for the same current consump- 
tion as carbon incandescent lamps. Mazda electric 
lighting is safe, clean and steady — always ready at the 
touch of a button. 

Unwired homes can be "modernized" with electric light 
at small cost.
