THE sample sketches on the previous pages demonstrate very clearly the careful design of the various types of Houses, all the space being used to the best advantage and excluding dark corners.
It should be pointed out again that to realise fully these advantages a personal visit to the Estate is necessary, when arrangements will be made to conduct persons interested to those Houses which specially appeal, and thus save prospective clients unnecessary delays and walking.

The Houses are well built, all external walls are brick, cavity built, in cement mortar, roofs covered with tiles or slates, all being British made. The damp course throughout consists of two courses of slates set in cement mortar. External renderings, where used, are composed of sand and cement, either with white or tinted cement. Twenty-five years' experience is behind us.
