What does the word "terzera" mean?
I came across this word in an old colonial Spanish document and it appears to be part of a house.
I found this interesting document, picture too big to reproduce here, which talks about building techniques, I guess this could be it. Please have a look at the pictures here.
I think the word is missing an R it should be terraza as in patio or terrace.
¿terzera?. I know "tercera" = third

Heidita is on the right track. I looked at some more references. One saw this more as an Italian word that would refer to a purlin/ horizontal member supporting a roof.
