In comparing the following estimates with the cost of buildings
already erected, it will be well to examine the specifications and
working plans and note the materials and construction called for.

The buildings illustrated will cost no more than poorly arranged
buildings of the same size and construction.

The cost will vary owing to the difference in the price of labor
and materials in different parts of the State.

The following estimates are based on prices at the present time
of labor and materials in the smaller towns and the construction and
materials called for by the specifications and working drawings:



Superintendent of Public Instruction. 471

In many rural districts the same materials can be had at from
twenty to thirty per cent less.

Cost of room A, plan No. 1 $625.00

Cost of room B, plan No. 1 500.00

Cost of plan No. 2 1.225.00

Cost of room A, plan No. 3 575.00

Cost of room B, plan No. 3 375.00

Cost of four-room building, plan No. 4 2,000.00

Cost of two-story four-room building, rooms A, C, B and G, 1,850.00

The cost of any of the buildings can be reduced aoout twenty per
cent by using 13-inch piers for foundation and leaving off sub-floor
sheathing and paper on side walls.

If so desired, the construction can be changed so as to give a
small room for library or superintendent at the rear of hall, plan
No. 4, in place of the coat-rooms shown.
