The Post Trader's House was "T" shaped in three sections. The stem of the "T" was built first and over time other rooms were added to the house. The small fireplace was actually designed to burn coal. Many houses of this time period included coal chutes that allowed for easy transfer of coal from wagons into a storage bin located within the home.

Support Walls
During the construction processes, lime-grout was poured around wooden 'nailers' - seen just above the floor height - to attach the base moulding. No support beams or rods were used to strengthen the lime-grout walls.

Adding Rooms
At one time the wall on the right was an exterior wall. When the room you are standing in was added to the house, builders gouged the exterior wall to receive plaster. Exterior windows were removed and replace with doors during the addition of the room.
