Excerpt from The Building Review, Vol. 23

journey by boat and train to the city for years happy in possession of a Cottage in the Country which modern transportation has placed within the teach of all city conveniences.

More thought is being given to architectural features in the building of these house! than formerly, as one would naturally requirt mote in the way of comfort and beauty in a year-round house than in a summer cottage Charm in a country house, small as well as large, depends not only On beauty of line ami form, but on suitability to location and environment. The house should present a complete picture in harmony with the size, shape anti elevation of the lot, with surrounding trees and shrubbery.

A traveller in European lands will notice the marked difference between the small houses there, and here in America. Many of these cottages were built to last for generations. Consequently they have acquired an atmosphere that only time and long habitation by many people can give. Here, we arc apt to regard the small home as a sort of tempos ary dwelling, a stepping stone to the more pretentious house which we will have as soon as the family grows larger, when the neighbor hood becomes tiresome, or when we can "afford it" Hut now, happily the little house is coming into its own. The architect is giv mg more time and study to this problem of the small house designed to fit the needs and taste of Mr. Would-be-Home Owner who desires something lasting and beautiful and within the limits of a moderate purse.

In so-doing the profession is rendering an important service to the people in encouraging the own-your-own-home. movement.
