Fite^-r FLoois PLAN 5—The Gambrel Roof Is the Leading Motif of this Design ratus, fuel rooms and storage, all conveniently arranged. The house shown in Figs. 5 and 6 is quite distinct from theone shown in Figs. 3 and 4. Mr. Boyd, in designing thishouse, accepted the gambrel roof as his leading motif. Thepiazza across the front has Doric fluted columns supportingthe roof. This treatment, together with the stone and brickchimney, form the chief architectural features of the exterior. The underpinning is built of rock-faced stone, and thebuilding, above, is covered on the exterior with white pineshingles, stained a silver gray, while the blinds and trim-mings are painted white, and the roof is covered withshingles and stained tobacco brown. The entrance is from the side, thereby giving a certainamount of privacy to the front piazza. The reception-hall and the living-room are irregular in form; they are bothtrimmed with chestnut and finished in a Flemish brown. Thehall has a bay-window
