Description
This is the first house the Hutchins attempted to build. Soon after construction began, the land on which the house was sited came under litigation. The Hutchins then had to leave the village for nearly a month. They lived with an Australian expatriate fisherman and his family while they negotiated the use of a different plot of land, and built a new house.
