About this object

Sergeant Quinlan's cottage has 2 small rooms downstairs and a large attic upstairs. It was originally built in Ireland Road, Panmure. This is a single unit Fencible cottage, and has more room than the double unit cottages that were built for the ordinary soldiers. 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. These Fencible cottages were not fitted with any taps, tubs or conveniences of any kind. Outside, the roof is covered with wooden shingles; and the gutters and down-pipes are also wooden.
