Traditional Home Plans
Old fashioned, traditional home plans with the dining room and kitchen in one.
¶ Upon looking over the plan of this compact little home, it occurs to us that possibly some people might like the general idea of the house and yet not find it convenient to go into the simple life to such an extent as to have the dining room and kitchen in one, as suggested here. Personally we like very much the homely comfort and good cheer which belongs to the big, old fashioned kitchen which is exquisitely kept and which has in it room for the dining table. But in order to make such an arrangement a success, a woman would have to be the sort of a housekeeper her grandmother probably was, and take a personal interest in her cupboard shelves and the brilliancy of her copper and brass cooking utensils, which few women nowadays have time to do.
¶ For those who prefer a separate dining room and a kitchen proper, we would suggest that the pantry and storeroom be thrown into one and used for a kitchen. The chimney built for the range would serve equally well for a fireplace in the dining room, and the range, if set in the adjoining corner, could easily be connected with the same flue. One of the pleasantest features is the veranda at the back, which can be enclosed with glass in winter.
