Tarn House

Another little house in the country.

As far as I was able to understand from the farmers’ wife this is a traditional farm cottage from the Tarn area. And very few now exist as they are built using bricks made from sun hardened earth. I had a look inside and I could hardly image what it would have been for a family to subsist in such a place.

The farmer and his wife are slowly restoring it as part of the heritage of the farming community that surrounds us in the Tarn.

Your posts of the tarn of the past few days were superb as always.
This cottage is so cute, no wonder the owners want to restore it

This kind of building technology is making a comeback.

Wonderful sight and light.

But as you said, that doll house was linked to hard subsistance...

I'll bet that the earthen bricks would keep it cool inside in the summer.
