No electricity/No plumbing
Some houses had a front veranda and a back porch , and occasionally an addition off the parlour , creating both a dining room and livingroom . This was rare and only happened if the highest official of the section was going to live in it . There were no frills for the regular section man . But , they did benefit once the 'boss' moved on with
The Section House at Tabarette was one such house . It had no electricity or plumbing , a standard for the time . Few people outside of cities/towns had such luxuries .
