Warning - blog owner is old and cranky and if you leave a comment he will follow you back to your place and return comment which usually leads to drama and debate, so if your blog is particularly Jesus / kitty / kid-intensive, you may want to reconsider.

New Echota, part IV
Today I show you the reconstructed poor man's house.
Smaller than the middle class stable with no rain shelter.
The corn crib is on the left in the foreground.
This is the loft above the bed, where the kids would sleep.
The inside ceiling. I took this because I was bored, waiting for an elementary school group to pass.
The last shot is a closeup of the front door. The wooden ball has a leather cord passed through its center which runs through a hole in the door and is attached to a wooden bar on the inside. To unlatch the door, one simply has to pull the ball which raises the bar above the catch. Good for keeping out game, but not so effective against intruders unless they happen to be dumb white rednecks more accustomed to remote keyless entry.
