an end stack with cloam oven. The smaller room on left was unheated. In circa C18
an unheated extension of 1 room plan and separate entrance was added on the right
hand gable end of the house, the extension probably a shippon or stable possibly
originally with a hay loft above.

structure partly replaced in C18; circa mid C17 truss on left has principals which
have been halved notched and lap-jointed at the apex with halving for collar

third trusses are halved, lapped and pegged at the apices with renewed collars. Butt
purlins to second and third truss and slighty trenched purlins to first.
