History

This hut was built for workers at the nearby sawmill, that was down in the gully, opposite the junction of Jones Road where it was "seldom seen". Timber from the mill was winched up the hill to this road junction and then trucked out.

The map shows a second hut across the road from this one, but it is long gone.

Construction

Weatherboard and iron walls over a sawn timber frame. Wooden floor and externally framed chimney. Skillion roof of iron.
