“Although the characteristics of this class of buildings are generally uniform, yet shades of difference occur here or there. These deviations are perceptible in the various countries where wooden houses are met with, and are found even in the different cantons of Switzerland. It would, however, carry us too far to enter more fully into various points of difference. [This image] exhibits a characteristic example of one of these Swiss-cottages or chalets.”
