Pantiled roof with gable ends, lower ridge level to left end. Painted stone rubble stack with bread oven projection at left end, and axial (formerly gable end) stone rubble stack towards right end. Plan: variant former 3-room and cross-passage plan, with heated rooms to each end and small unheated pantry to left of former cross-passage. In C20 the former staircase at the rear of the cross-passage , and the partition to the lower side of the passage were removed. At the same time a second entrance was made direct into left-hand heated room, which was reduced in size by enlarging the former pantry and creating an axial rear passage to connect the 2 end rooms.

Right-hand room has chamfered cross-beam and head-beam grooved to take plank partition incorporating central doorway to lower side of former passage. Unchamfered lintel to fireplace with bread oven. The timber surround to the gable end blocked doorway survives ta first floor, apparently unchamfered. Roof: Structure consists of 3 pairs of jointed crucks, said to be full crucks.
