German to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering - Architecture / Dach
German term or phrase:Niederlass
Im Niederlass unter dem abgeschleppten Dach des Hauses....
What is "Niederlass"?.In the .....under the extended roof of the house....
Yes, it's a room; usually added later to make use of a roof and the wall of the building that already exist...and the guy made the measuring cups/buckets/vessels...as you probably saw, this is an archaic word is this a type of Heimatmuseum?
It would help to know more about the house; I'd say lean-to, but it doesn't quite fit here since those are usually added afterwards. There's a drawing& descr. of one at www.denkmalpflege- hessen.de/LFDH4_DDM_2001-03/body_index.html
