The Original Newcomb (The Rand Cottage)
The Brison Newcomb is another version of the design. - two versions actually, one with a hip roof like this house, and a gable roof version.
So you can see that this design has been very popular.
Inside, the cottage seems much more spacious than its 908 square feet would suggest. It is a comfortable, cozy living space for a couple of adults and the occasional visitors. (Click photos to enlarge.)
The Newcomb is actually a hybrid timber frame, with conventionally-framed walls but a timber framed roof structure and some supporting posts.
