"And that wind sounding in the firs by the lattice"

Lattice windows feature heavily in the book, and are repeatedly mentioned in connection with the Wuthering Heights house.

Large sheets of glass were expensive.  It was cheaper to have windows made up of many tiny panes joined together with lead. Today they are a much-loved feature of many English country cottages and other period buildings.
