Difficult to read occupation - No. 2

Hi, thought I might as well edit this post with a new occupation that I can't read! I've attached the image.

Someone else on the page seems to also be a farmer but underneath it says 'boy in door'. Mine says '?? door labourer'

Any ideas what it means?

Freehold Farmer of 40 acres emplying 1 in door labourer - I understand that boys were usuallly employed indoors, they would do chores within the farm and its buildings. Outdoor labourers did the rest of the work on the farm
