Contracts for building are among those frequently made, and also among those which require the utmost care. A specification, stating and describing all the things which the parties desire and intend to have done, should always accompany the contract ; and it may be difficult for persons not accustomed to the work to remember and specify, and properly describe, all the things they propose to have in the building; but all these things should be accurately and precisely stated in the specification, as far as possible; for from omissions or errors of this kind, cases and questions are constantly arising.
