The Eye Opener

We are attempting to build a new house on the site of the old wrecked one. The type of house we build will be determined by the plans and specifications we select. Exactly the same materials can be used to build either a palace or a hovel; the difference will be chiefly one of design. The palace requires more material and a great deal more labor, however.
In your rebuilding, be sure that the basement is DRY; the corners SQUARE; the walls UPRIGHT and TRUE, and your house will stand, even after you, the builder, are dead and gone.
