Teddybear, these farms are called (in Dutch) "Stolpboerderijen". Stolp = Bell glass, boerderij = farm.

You are a sharp observer Tom. When I took this picture, my wife said, this is not authentic, they made windows in the roof and that destroyes the original architecture!

Linny, pyramid is exactly what is used in my encyclopedia to describe this particular farm architecture (in Dutch called a Stolpboerderij = Bell glass farm).

Very pyramid-like... do these houses have high ceilings or is the top part usually a loft?

Doris, originally these farmhouses were built to store hay in the center until the roof and to have living quarters and stables around the hay stack. But nowadays the interior of this type of farmhouses (the design goes back to 1600!) has often been completely reconstructed.

The windows (or sky lights) brought up a question I had that Doris has ask and you have answered. I just love Dutch architecture!!!!!!!!

Wonderful !
(Kheops's farm ?!)

Thank you Dony.
I don't know the name Kheop's farm. In Dutch they are called "Stolpboerderijen". Stolp = Bell glass, boerderij = farm.

Thank you, Peter. It would have kept all the occupants warm during the cold winter months... it's interesting to imagine in these industrial (and somewhat sterile) days that people in Europe once shared their indoor living space with farm animals.
Did the original houses have thatched roofs?

They did Doris, for decoration. Originally there were no windows in the roof. The roofs were partly covered with thatch (reed) in beautiful patterns, a bit like the second farm house in the picture.
