The object of this illustration is to show how double cottages may be placed lenthwise, thus producing a saving in frontage of lot -- a very great desideratum in cities, where building lots are of a high value.
This block would cost a very moderate sum in places where pine lumber is worth about $5 per thousand. If erected of boards inch and half thick, tongued, grooved, and slatted on the outside, and flush on the inside, it would cost about $150 per cottage: or $300 for the block complete.
