end, and form and size of fireplace added at E end with staircase beside
it shows that this became the parlour end. Interior has exposed framing
with jowled posts, tension bracing in cross-wall, and clasped-purlin
roof on collar-and-queen strut trusses with curved wind-braces.
Edge-halved scarf in front wallplate. (RCHM Typescript).
