IIRC however TR states that typically steads range between to 1-12 hearths, with 10-15 adults per hearth.

Don't we have 40 adults - that would put us at 3-4 hearths in our stead. We might be tempted to have split hearth with half a cattle byre, instead of seperate barns. The number of other buildings should reflect this number of hearths.

"They were seven in all, and therewithal both sides rushed into the fight. Thorarin slew a house-carle of Thorbiorn's, and Alfgeir another, and there fell also a housecarle of Thorarin's; but no weapons would bite on Odd Katlason. Now the goodwife Aud calls out on her women to part them, and they cast clothes over the weapons." The Story Of The Ere-Dwellers Chapter 18
