(A)bout 1765...a lean-to was built across the entire rear of the house and the steeply pitched roof lowered accordingly.  The new addition contained four rooms, from east to west, a service room of undetermined function, a narrow pantry full of shelves, the kitchen proper, and a small bedchamber entered only from the kitchen...The new workrooms in the lean-to were made nothing more than serviceable. There was no need to hide framing members behind plaster walls and ceilings in a pantry or kitchen. The board partitions were made up from older, reused materials, probably removed from the parlor and parlor chamber.
