Blueprint for Living

An architect or builder planning the construction of a new house usually begins with surveys of the site selected and goes on to drawings, blueprints, and specifications. Surveys aid in determining how the dwelling may best be located on the chosen site. Drawings and blueprints portray just how the house will appear when finished, and how it is to be constructed. Specifications provide what materials are to be used and how they are to be put together. If properly prepared and carefully followed, these building plans assure orderly, step-by-step progress in the erection of the dwelling, from the laying of its foundation to its completion.

In these days when the building or re-establishment of homes is of major interest to peoples everywhere, it may be helpful to others to hear how one individual, active in the home construction field, by the practical application of his daily study of the Lesson-Sermon appearing in the Christian Science Quarterly found simple and harmonious solutions to his complex building problems.
