Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Building

DSC_0726

Am into small houses lately and I could see am not the only one. Cee posed a challenge for “Buildings” and I see a lot of small structures and barns. Two of my favorite subjects to shoot.

This is my entry to this week’s challenge.

This was taken in Yorkville (VA), an old settlement. The building is a replica of a storage structure or what we would call a shed nowadays. I forgot to ask where the door was but I thought I walked around the perimeter and didn’t notice it. This was used to store their crops during Winter.

Their homes during those days looked like this too. They have one structure where the family lived, a one room affair, but with a fireplace and a separate one as a smokehouse. That also becomes the kitchen.

It was way much simpler then. It could not be compared with a hole in the sand though. LOL

    The one room house has very simple furnitures of course, there’s a dining table and bed. The most important is the firepit or the fireplace which gives warmth in Winter and also serves as the place to cook. Nowadays one can get lost at the rooms our houses have.

  7. Reminds me of structures we saw in Estonia, in a park where traditional structures were conserved..

    When you come to think about it, anywhere in the world, most houses are basically the same. Most times they differ only in the materials they use – they used what was on hand.
