A house is more than its parts, but without the parts there would be no house. House structure, its parts and the way they fit together, make the house livable. How well they fit plays a big part in determining the beauty of the whole.
“House Structure”, as used in this page, refers to all those major components of a house. It covers roofs and walls, window and doorway, heating systems and plumbing systems. I could not find a better term to cover such a diversity. “Things That Go Into and Make Up a House” was a bit too cumbersome.
It does not cover abstractions, like mass or balance, nor items of strictly decorative nature. Yet all these things are likely to come up in the course of discussing these various parts of a house.
Think of this page as a hallway. Like a hall it will take you to other places. I envision it becoming a very long hallway, with lots of rooms opening onto this hallway. You have visited at a time when it is a very short hallway.
Such as it is please take a tour of the few rooms I have constructed:
Enter into the above rooms and you will get some facts seasoned with a few opinions. It should be clear which are which. It is my hope that they will be both helpful and enjoyable.
Some people will find this information vitally important - those who are planning a new house for instance. A few style curmudeons, people like me, will get passionate about these topics. Most will find them mildly amusing, a short repast before Googling "Cute bunny videos".
Whatever your category, feel free to enjoy "House Structure", a work-in-progess.
