Note. - While the electric lighting fixtures are not generally made a part of the building contract, it may be worth while to consider them in relation to the cost of the house; although,as has been stated, there is such a wide range in design and cost, as well as in personal preference, that any data given can be at best only approximate.

The following estimate is based upon simple designs of moderate cost in "old brass" finish:
