At Toitu, the Settlers Museum, in Dunedin there is an example of the kind of home that George would have built for Sophia. Cob walls with wooden rafters and thatched roof, it would have been a sturdy little building but quite cosy for a small family. Sophia may have lain grass on the floor, or perhaps woven a rag rug, and George would have made the bed frame from the branches of trees around them.
