Note Date Short Description Note Text
3420 1869 Original construction. The center section was the first to be erected, possibly by Charles Ray. At this period in time, the house building standards called for a separate kitchen building to the main house building. This may have been driven by insurance companies due to kitchen fires. Dwelling #440 started out as a separate kitchen building for dwelling #69 It was constructed of pug / rammed earth walls, with timber and corrugated iron roof.
3421 c1945 Two outer sheds added to the building. It appears that about this time Mr Frank Garth constructed the two outer sheds. These were made from timber framing with corrugated iron cladding. It appears that the eastern part was used as a storage shed, and the western end was fitted with a copper for heating water, twin concrete washtubs and a tin bath. It is not clear when the 'kitchen' was moved from dwelling #440 into dwelling #69
