Old Tiny House Made of Peat

Peat is just another word for turf so this is similar to that of the Iceland turf houses I showed you earlier today.

  1. My wife is from western Nebraska and in the 1800s some early settlers constructed small homes of sod. When we toured the Buffalo Bill Ranch in North Platte I believe they had a small sod house on display. These homes made sense on the grassy plains where there were so few trees with which to build and the thick sod walls were good insulators against the temperature extremes.
