Designs for Labourers Cottages


necessity. Dogrose (page 64) errs on the extrava-
gant side in providing a special bath-room. His
semi-circular gables and red-brick quoins would be
a happy elevational feature, but we hardly approve
of his huge stone slab below the chimney cap.
This would collect wet and only increase the
difficulty always experienced in preventing it from
descending the shaft. The pretty little drawing
of Caliban (on this page) suggests very pleasantly

a group possessing true
cottage feeling, but a
lead flat and a V-gutter
are things to avoid as
far as possible. The
design sent by Pierrot
(page 67) has a very
engaging little perspec-
tive sketch, and a plan
showing considerable
ingenuity. Bedrooms
18 ft. long, two w.c.’s, and
a first-floor bath-room,
all, however, suggest
the middle - class villa,
rather than the working-
man’s cottage. The plan,
sent by Tulip (page 63)
has taken into considera-
tion, which few of the
others have, that it is
necessary, or, at all events,
desirable for the occupant of the middle of
three cottages to reach his back garden or yard,
as the case may be, without crossing that
of his next - door neighbour. It does not
indicate, by the bye, how it is proposed
to light the staircases. The scullery is somewhat
difficult of access from the kitchen. Stem (page 63),
shows a washhouse approached from the kitchen—
never a very wise thing, as giving opportunity
