Having decided to build a house after her own ideas of house building, Arabella draws up her plans and sets to work. The workmen do not hurry sufficiently to suit her ladyship and she makes them work at a very high speed. Finally her house is finished in a downright Jerry-built fashion, and it does not prove capable of containing the crowd of guests whom Arabella invites to attend the housewarming. The house collapses under its burden and causes the guests to receive many hard knocks, which they do not omit to return to the unfortunate architect with interest.
