The tenant house on the Spray Plantation was constructed of poles and clapboard siding. The chimney/fireplace is central to the one room building with loft, where the tenant family lived.
Here is the young man, discussing "his life," as son
of Master Spray, visiting tenant house.
Several family members would have lived in this one room, with a small loft where the
older children would have slept on bed ticks.

Notice the ladder leading to the loft, above and behind us, in the photo.
Here is the area, near the Master's house, where the rails and other wood products are produced.
