If you are all about wooden house picture prints on your wall, take a look at this artwork I created inspired by a house near my home, just around the corner.
The first memories I have from the town I live in go back over almost 50 years.
I was a young boy from São Paulo City with a farmer grandfather that always wanted me here to spend my vacations.
One thing that always used to catch my attention was the wood plank houses on the outskirts of the city, and workers homes in the farms.
They always reminded me of the little houses from children’s story books.
People were very poor in those days and building masonry homes was just getting to get popular.
Progress was a luxury that Brazilians could only dream about in those days and, yet, it was just around the corner.
I remember my grandfather being a pioneer in that issue. He was one of the first local farmers to build masonry homes for his employees
Estimated to be 3000 years old, Kitselas Canyon at the Paul Mason location in occidental British Columbia, CA is the most ancient plank house village site ever found.
Dated approximately 4000 BC, is a fire hole related with an individual lodge located on the Maurer Site near the Fraser River.
The archeological testimony for these natives is not very well known, due to the type of the material being so common.
The continued manner and use of the harvests were driven to sustainability.
They had great respect for wood and the environment and developed a common sense method to save it as much as possible for many generations.
