Skillion Domestic Carpenter

No. 82 (previously was no. 118) East street is a house constructed in timber framing and jarrah weatherboard cladding with skillion corrugated iron roofs. It is a complex example of a simple timber residence. There have been several additions over a number of occasions. The front elevation is asymmetrically planned with 'picture' windows to the north and a small veranda to the south. The house steps back in numerous layers.
Notwithstanding numerous overlays the place is consistent with the pattern of development in Plympton and plays an important role in the pattern of development of a working class suburb.
