Abstract:
The Problem - The first requirement in the constructio of any dwelling is livability. It must be free from dampness from beneath, from rain or snow-water from above, and from the elements driven against the sides. It must be capable of being easily heated during winter, and must offer protection from excessive heat in summer. In short, it must afford shelter and comfort for its occupants.
