J. L. Naylor House
Golf Road, New Lynn, Auckland

This is a good example of a minimum-sized house, the area being 870 square feet, compact and well arranged. The exterior has a brick base, stained weatherboard walls and a fabric roof.

Inside, the walls of the living room are lined with kahikatea plywood, waxed, other walls with gibraltar board stopped and matt painted.

The warmth of this plywood panelling and the exposed roof joists give a particularly pleasant domestic character to the interior, and contrast effectively with the large unobstructed glazing.
