The main building is comprised of two adjoined houses. The northern and lowest rising section was most likely erected during the first half of the 18th century. At that time it was 8 metres longer, such that the entrance was centrally located on the building. The southern part of the main building, which is both slightly wider and taller than the oldest section, was erected near the end of the 19th century, at the same time the northern section was demolished.

Both sections of the main building are built from cogging jointed timber and clad with vertical red painted panelling on the exterior. Each building has a saddle roof. While the oldest roof is covered with sod, the newest is slate covered, something that was quite common during the last part of the 19th century. The windows on the two sections are also dissimilar and represent two different centuries - 18th century and 19th century.
