Philip SD Sod Prairie Home -

Original available.

I felt I had to capture this historic "tiny house" as a watercolor painting. It is an original sod dugout cabin that was built at the turn of the century. Native cottonwood trees were used for beams and plowed buffalo grass sod served as the upper walls. The sod construction kept their home cool in the summer and warm in the winter. What an ingenious use of local architectural resources on the wide open desolate plains of South Dakota!

All prints made in the USA using high quality archival inks. Mats and backing boards are also archival quality and fit into standard size frames.
