The building is made from old fieldstone found on the property. The structure was built into an existing fieldstone dry-stacked wall that ran through the center of the property and dates back to the 18th century. By utilizing stone from a derelict portion of the wall, the front elevation and small garden appears to grow out of the site. Ted Le Mastra of Allentown, PA was the stone mason who worked on the building. He could perhaps suggest something similar if you have a particular project in mind.

Wow this roof is awesome! I'm pretty familiar with the European style clay tile but this is really different. Are they made of the same material?

The clay tile is made by Northern Roof Tile out of Quebec, Canada. The clay tiles give the diminutive space an authentic English cottage feel.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The cottage's distinctive butterfly window, made from mahogany and so named because it looks like the wings of a butterfly when open, stemmed from Tolkien's sketches, as well as his descriptions of hobbits preferring windows that showcase views of the woods. The semicircular halves of the window open from a center hinge.
