^/crs.~s.v XpmNo-saaM •w First floor planlater, to the creative abilityof our present day mastersof domestic architecture, ofwhich, happily, Americaboasts of many. As an ex-ample of the small house in-spired by Colonial precedent, one may take that owned by Mr. John Hobbs, of PelhamHeights, New York, shown on pages 147 and 148, of whichthe Milligan Company was builder and architect. Fromthe Dutch Colonial type the gambril roof was derived,while the introduction of stone in the walls of the dining-room corner of the house and in the entrance-porch and thecovered veranda is as pleasing as the stone work of thehouse types of the Pennsylvania Colonial period. Thishouse follows an excellent plan for the first floor and alsofor the second floor. Although the entrance from outsideis directly into the living-room, without intermediary hall-way or vestibule, this living-room is so well arranged thatthis abrupt entrance does not appear to be an intrusion.
