Houses: pair semi-detached. 1925. Double 75mm concrete slab walls with 75mm cavity: steel roof arched frame, with bitumenised asbestos cement on steel roof: rendered-concrete stack. Semi-circular roof, carried down to a bell-mouth on the sides below first floor level. Plain doors toward the outsides of the pair, with small outer window alongside, and 4-light casement windows in centres, with similar windows above. Similar rear elevation; kitchen and bathroom windows on the sides under the roof. The interiors not seen. A pair of semi-industrialised experimental cost-cutting houses by local architects Petter and Warren, based on the principles of Lt. Col. P.N. Misser, D.S.O., R.E., used in the erection of the First World War Nissen Huts. Estimated to cost 350 pounds each, about 100 pounds cheaper than conventional 'non-parlour' houses of the day, they ended up at 513 pounds 11s, 7d each, and Yeovil Town Council built no more.
