To be clear about it though, using glass to close off windows goes back much further than the year 1400. It was expensive in the early times and maybe could not be used in this house for that reason.
The wooden mullions for keeping thieves and buggers out, the shutters to keep out the wind and snow and at the same time control ventilation of the smoke from the fire.

I wonder if in such a house farm animals would have been kept along side where the people were living?
