Thatched fruit house help

One of our readers from Australia is looking for some assistance with information on thatched fruit houses.

He believes that West Dean has a thatched Fruit House and is a volunteer gardener at Camden Park, NSW, Australia, the gardens dating to 1820.

Camden Park Estate once had a thatched fruit house, demolished probably during or soon after WWII and he is trying to find information on the structure of such buildings, including photographs, plans, whatever is available.

Can anyone help him?
