INTERIOR: The NW room has a lateral stone fireplace at the back with an unchamfered timber lintel and a cloam oven with its cloam door, over which is a cast-iron door; the floor over the NW room is more recent. The SE room has been subdivided and a staircase installed at the front. Simple collar-truss roof structure, the collars lapped and pegged to the principals, which have mortice and tenoned apexes; no common-rafters, but horizontal battens span bays between the trusses, and the thatch was laid directly on top. The whole roof structure is lightly smoke-blackened. The thatch has been removed and a modern structure has been built over the old roof.
