O.S. Fowler, who, among his skull-reading and other diverse hobbies, came to design octagonal homes, noted that the properly proportioned and configured house could bring about truly harmonious living.

It often, generally, by perpetually irritating mothers, sours the tempers of their children, even before birth, thus rendering the whole family bad-dispositioned by nature, whereas a convenient one would have rendered them constitutionally amiable and good." So, in an effort to keep Earl well-dispositioned and friendly, we're going to give this project a really thorough think through.
