Description

An essential component of homes and commercial buildings before the advent of indoor plumbing, privies--also known as "garden houses"--have found new uses as storage sheds, pool houses, etc. In this pattern book of 18th- and 19th-century designs, Harrison has painstakingly documented existing historic structures and translated them into beautiful line drawings, including compelling details such as finials, doors, windows, and ventilators.
