The next morning, Rebecca walked over to a lean-to to check for their hikers' logbook.
The internal arrangement of a lean-to mushroom house is shown in fig.
A lean-to against the north side of the garden wall will be found suitable for the purpose, though a span-roofed form may also be adopted, especially if the building stands apart.
The lean-to is the least desirable form, since it scarcely admits of elegance of design, but it is necessarily adopted in many cases.
Except where space does not permit a span-roofed building to be introduced, a lean-to is not to be recommended; but a house of this class may often be greatly improved by adopting a half-span or hipped roof - that is, one with a short slope behind and a longer in front.
