System No. 3 differs from System No. 2 in generally separating the carcase and finishings, so that the only alterations to the foregoing list will consist in removing the sashes and frames, window boards, architraves, and plastering from the "Dormers" and placing them under the heading of "Windows," and removing all except the above items from the headings "Windows," "External doors" and "Internal doors," and placing them under new headings of "Window openings," "External door openings," and "Internal door openings," to be inserted immediately after "Facings " in the foregoing list.

In the two following chapters the modes of measurement will be given in the order, generally, of System No. 3. They will be found to include most of the ordinary items comprised in a domestic building, from which the student may acquire a knowledge of general principles capable of further application; to attempt more than this is beyond the scope of the present work, - indeed, the most exhaustive treatise can but supplement, it cannot supplant, that experience which can only be gained in the office of a competent Surveyor.
