Object Name Print, Photographic
Title Outlooker remnant and lintel ear
Description The rotted end-grain of the timber in the center of the photo is the cut-off remains of the northern outlooker, one of the pair of cantilevered supports for the 20th-century pent hood over the kitchen doorway in the east eaves wall. Just below and to the left of the outlooker fragment is the northern tenon [“ear”] which emerges from the pegged corner-joint of the door-frame lintel in its 20th-century location. The original lintel was 4 inches lower, and its tenon was pocketed in the masonry abutment; the “pocket” and some of the mortar in-fill are visible below the tenon. The replacement lintel will be secured to the abutting masonry at the original elevation and the tenon inserted into the original pocket [see DTR09FN3 --1001.01.176 for a sketch drawing of the various positions of the door frame from the early period to modern times, including the 2009 restoration].
