Wind is taking its toll on an old farmhouse, Kyamma, near Crookwell. A 2008 picture shows the roof largely intact. I took these pictures in light rain this week. Strangely, it is in this final act of disintegration that the hand of the builder, the material and method of construction become clear.
The shingles were chips from local gums. Highly flammable, they were a cause of many house fires (see now close they are to the chimney).
