0013 class=

Perspective view including ground & 1st.floor plans published in “Modern Cottage Architecture” 1904. “This cottage is provided with water and electric light from the stables. The roof was thatched with reeds grown on the estate by an old thatcher whose services were fortunately obtained in the neighbourhood. Good thatcher are now becoming very scarce. Her performed the whole job with the aid of his son, and he is reponsible for the curious shape of the gable top. The thatch is about 15 inches thick and is bound down with heavy cord to wood fillets. The other materials used were oak half-timbering and local red brocks, and the upper parts of the walls were finished in plaster on a cement backing.”
