Notes: The house of Westdean was recently completed for Mr D S Honeyman junior. It is built of local stone, the facework, corners etc being irregularly built of rubble from Hailes Quarry near Edinburgh in varied colours. The roofs are covered with Caithness brown stone slates. The interior of the house is simply treated, the principal rooms being panelled with square jointed paneling, the ornamental ceilings being executed in modelled plaster-work by Mr Sam Wilson, Edinburgh. The mason work was executed by Mr Alex Fraser and the joiner work by Mr John Smith, both Kirkcaldy. The plumber work was carried out by Mr Hugh Weir, of Edinburgh. The garden was laid out under the direction of the architect. [Builder 6 July 1917 p6]
