Dutch sod hut



















This is the first house I made, a Dutch cabin/hut (2007).
Poor people lived in these huts in Holland in earlier times, the peat workers/ peat diggers, it was a very poor and hard life
This house I made it's to pretty to nice, I have made it from plywood the roof is coconut fiber, in reality there was  grass turf/sod on the roof.

  1. Gonda, I love that you made this hut a nice home to live. Poor people can also live in a nice place sometimes. :)

    I am also building an abandoned house and the exterior is a little like the one in the 1st pic. Mine has been transformed though :).
