C. H. S., Newmarket, Ontario, Canada, says: - "Being compelled by the narrowness of my lot, which runs east and west, to build my greenhouse ending the same way, I would be thankful to you for information as to whether there would be any advantage in building a span-roofed house over a lean-to ?"

So far as we can understand our correspondent's wants, there seems to be no objection whatever to a lean-to house under his circumstances. - Ed. G. M].
