German to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering - Architecture
German term or phrase:Putzbau
"Die XYZ Mühle ist ein langgestreckter Putzbau mit Satteldach [...]"
This is from a page of a website trying to make local tourist attractions sound remotely interesting. The first documentary evidence of the building in question goes back to 1344, so I'm not sure what to use for "Putzbau" here. Architecture is something of a grey area for me and all the dictionary entries (plaster etc.) sound wrong to my ears.
