House Plans from Homes for the People.

by Gervase Wheeler, 1855

GATE-HOUSE

Plan of Principal Floor Pl. LIV: Estates, farm-like or wild, of such extent as to place the house at considerable distance from the public road, require some cottage or farm-habitation, near to the road. The outline of the main building is somewhat that of the letter T, and connected with it is a low inclosure, roofed over and containing the adjuncts that convenience requires near the house. The entrance is under a rustic porch or veranda, of which the supporting posts may be of timber from the forests, with the bark remaining thereon. From this the entrance-door opens into a hall, No. 1, 6' wide. Upon one side of this hall is the best sitting-room, No. 2, 15' x 15'. Upon the other side of the hall is a living-room, or bed-room, as the family may prefer, No. 3; a kitchen, No. 4, 10'6" x 15'; an entry, with sink therein, No. 5; and a large store pantry or larder, No. 6. These rooms, including the living-room, comprise the main body of the building, and from the entry, 5, a rear door connects with an open space, No. 7, screened by a lattice door and fence on either side, and covered with a roof above. In a line with this the out-building is continued, affording accommodation for a wood-shed, No. 8, and with it a necessary. There are three sleeping-rooms upstairs.
