Some of the Structural Problems in Alternative Methods of Small House Construction

The only excuse for offering this paper to such an Institution as this is that the author has, during the last year or so, had the task of examining very many proposals for alternative methods of construction for small houses. Not himself having attempted to make any original contribution and not being wedded to any particular method of construction or material it is possible to present something of a bird's eye view of the problem as a whole which may perhaps be helpful to somebody who is entering the field with tremendous enthusiasm for some particular form,but perhaps somewhat lacking in experience of the general background into which his particular project has to be fitted.
