This annual was prepared as a source of useful information for home-builders. It is designed to help the layman understand in solid terms of brick and mortar, of framing and plaster, of dollars and ents, just what plans mean, and when construction begins, to help the reader to follow the progress of the work. It aims to give anyone planning to build an adequate opinion of the comparative desirability of materials for obtaining given effects, of their relative cost and wearing qualities, and of the approved methods of construction.
