- II

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.
