Excerpt from House Construction That Reduces Heating Costs

Buildings of the larger type, especially those relating to community needs, have been carefully studied by the architect and the engineer and excellent standards of construction have been developed. The office building, the school, the auditorium, the factory and the apartment building, in their individual fields and according to their respective needs have all commanded the best in science and skill which the country affords, with the result that they have become models of convenience and economy. Residence buildings, on the other hand. Especially those costing under seven or eight thousand dollars. Principally because of the smaller investment but partly because of the urgency of the call elsewhere, have had less attention and so, in a sense, have been neglected by the engineer and the architect and turned over to the best judgment of the owner and the builder. As a result, the houses we live in need our serious consideration.

The residence problem throughout the country has become acute and there must be, in the near future, a strong revival of small building projects to satisfy the unprecedented demand now existing for new houses. With this prospect in view it is fitting to discuss the most outstanding imperfections in our present practice and suggest some changes for the better. This is a large field to enter and no attempt will be made to cover it. Only one type of construction will be considered. The framed-wall type sometimes called the balloon-frame construction. This type of construction has many possibilities for good or ill. Since it may be either the best or the worst for the comfort of the occupants. According to the care with which it is planned and constructed.
