I enjoyed a quick view of this book. It focuses on the ergonomics of having a house and even the sounds of having the housekeeper or servants preparing the table so as to not interrupt the goings on in the parlor by kitchen or dining area activities.
The rolls of housekeeper or spouse have changed from the society in the late 1800's.
From before 1900, society has changed for most of us of modest means. Many of the design considerations are no longer a consideration in the 2000's, but some are. People are still people, but our way of addressing needs and our perception of the needs have changed.
Still, I enjoyed the read.
