Farm House 4 Interior Arrangement






The front door from the veranda of the house opens into a hall, 188 feet, and 11 feet high, amply lighted by sash windows on the sides, and over the door. From the rear of this hall runs a flight of easy stairs, into the upper or chamber hall. On one side of the lower hall, a door leads into a parlor, 18 feet square, and 11 feet high, lighted by three windows, and warmed by an open stove, or fireplace, the pipe passing into a chimney flue in the rear. A door passes from this parlor into a rear passage, or entry, thus giving it access to the kitchen and rear apartments. At the back end of the front hall, a door leads into the rear passage and kitchen; and on the side opposite the parlor, a door opens into the sitting or family room, 1816 feet in 119 area, having an open fireplace, and three windows. On the hall side of this room, a door passes into the kitchen, 2216 feet, and which may, in case the requirements of the family demand it, be made the chief family or living room, and the last one described converted into a library. In this kitchen, which is 120 lighted by two windows, is a liberal open fireplace, with an ample oven by its side, and a sink in the outer corner. A flight of stairs, also, leads to the rear chambers above; and a corresponding flight, under them, to the cellar below. A door at each end of these stairs, leads into the back entry of the house, and thus to the other interior rooms, or through the rear outer door to the back porch. This back entry is lighted by a single sash window over the outside door leading to the porch. Another door, opposite that leading down cellar, opens into the passage through the wing. From the rear hall, which is 165 feet, the innermost passage leads into a family bedroom, or nursery, 1614 feet, lighted by a window in each outside wall, and warmed by an 121 open fireplace, or stove, at pleasure. Attached to this bedroom is a clothes-closet, 84 feet, with shelves, and drawers. Next the outer door, in rear end of the hall, is a small closet opening from it, 64 feet in dimensions, convertible to any use which the mistress of the house may direct.
