The houses long ago were not like the houses now. There was no such thing as a slated house at that time nor even a house thatched with straw. The houses were made of stone and wood and they were thatched with rushes. There was no chimneys on the houses but in place of a chimney there was a large hole in which the smoke went out. The houses were divided into two parts a kitchen and a room the kitchen was about twice the size of the room. In each house there was a bed in one corner and this place was called the hag. The floors were made from dobe. There was only one door and three windows in each house. Over the door there was a loft made of rods and up on this loft the hens were kept and at the ? of the house the cows were tied and the donkey was also tied at one corner of the house and those that kept a goat tied him to the leg of the table. They had straw curtains on the windows and outside the hag bed and they had the forks in the house stuck in the curtains.
