Hello,
In The Rainbow, by D.H.Lawrence, last chapter, ursula is walking in the rain, she says,

the grimed houses glowed dull red, the butt houses burned scarlet in a gleam of light, under the glistening, blackish purple slates.

what is butt house, is it a special kind of a house or is it a part of a house?
thank you for your help
