Original roof complete in left bay, altered in right bay, of clasped purlin construction with wattle and daub partitions. Some exposed' close studding with matching curved display braces on the first-floor landing is non-structural, apparently removed from the left cross-wing and re-assembled as decor.

A photograph in the possession of- the owners shows the house before the addition of the C20 extensions, with only one small extension to the left of the left cross-wing.
