By tl^e time he Is ready to consider owning a home he has spent msny hours studying various types of required by his family. He has col ­ lected a miscellaneous asnnrtment of pictures, catalogue and informa ­ tion which he hopes to utilize in his own mimterplcer When he has reached this stage he becomes Im ­ patient to realize his Ideas but Is uncertain of the best way to set tbe wheels In motion. Ths question of finance is sn Im ­ portant one. Very few home build ­ ers know what proportion of (he total coat of the operation must be borne by them directly and what proportion can be financed by a mortgage. This varies somewhat, depending partly on the condition of the money market, tbe estimat ­ ed market jralur of the property and the moral risk. Under normal conditions reputable mortgage companies will loan M per ceqt or 60 per cent of the estimated value of the property on a first mort ­ gage which runs, usually, for three or five years, without amortization. which can usually renewed without difficulty Additional fin ­ ancing necessary may be done by a second mortgage up to 10 per cent or 20 per cent, but this amount Is usually amortized, that Is. paid back In Installments Another method of financing Is by the budding and loan companies These companies will frequently advance a large proportion of the total cost, but the loan must over a period of about 12 yer that at the end of the period been entirely paid off. The Hext question Is that led A ' problem ihould rd before a lot Is purchaa- horough discussion of the will enable him to aacrr- type of house required to meet the client ’ s needs and wheth ­ er any particular property under consideration Is well adapted for this style of house. His experience may enable him to see possibilities In a difficult site or notice defects in what appenrs to be a perfect sit ­ uation; and his knowledge of real estate values may be of financial benent to his client. After the sits has been tentative ­ ly or definitely selected, the next step Is that of preparing sketches. These are usually at small scale and are designed to Ideas of the client, to show the size and arrangement of rooms and the character or style of the exterior. Sometimes many Sketches are nec ­ essary before all difficulties are When the general ’ scheme has been authorized the architect musf then prepare working drawings, de ­ tails and specifications. These as are necessary to show all spec ­ ial features of the building. These drawings, together with the specl- ficnUops. constitute a complete de ­ scription of the hulldlng for the puhpose of obtaining estimates and erecting It. The next problem Is that of lestrable select i i this 1 mp ' ,r ' talned and the After the contract has been left and work started, the architect must spend hours at the R>b see ­ ing that the work Is being carried out in accordance with the plans and specifications This superin ­ tendence Is absolutely necessary to achieve the result Intended, for many verbsd explanations are MODEL HOUSE WINS PRAISE OF ARCHITECT Benedict W. .Hill Visits the Mahlstedt Residence on Earlwooje Drive, White Plain* Attendance records at ths Whits Plains model house, sponsored by ths New Tork Federation of Wo ­ man ’ s Clubs In cooperation with ths J,.A Mahlstedt Lumber A Coal Company.
