Cottage Design Ii






This cottage is a grade beyond the one just described, both in appearance and accommodation. It is 2016 feet on the ground, with a rear wing 268 feet in area. The main body is 10 feet high, to the roof, vertically boarded and battened. A snug, half-open (or it may be closed, as convenience may require,) porch shelters the front door, 54 feet in area. The cottage has a square or hipped roof, of a 30 pitch from a horizontal line, which spreads full two feet over the walls and bracketed beneath. The rear wing retreats two feet from the wall line of the main building, and has also a hipped roof of the same pitch as the main one, with eight-feet posts. The open end of the wing advances 6 feet toward the front of the main part for wood-house and storage. The construction of this is in the same style as Design I. The windows are plain, two-sashed, of six lights each, 812 glass in front, and 810 in the rear.
