There is a midline chimney with an open fireplace on either side, one for each of the downstairs rooms. There are only 2 sash windows downstairs and 2 at each end of the attic. The narrow, steep staircase leading to the attic is visible through the mirror in the living room.Outside, the roof is covered with wooden shingles; and the gutters and down-pipes are also wooden.
These Fencible cottages were not fitted with any taps, tubs or conveniences of any kind.
