Ushuaia104 viewsOne of the original houses built by homesteaders in the 1980's. The Argentine government was afraid Chile would take Tierra del Fuego from them, so they made a massive push to get settlers into Ushuaia. There was no housing available, so people quickly built these tiny cabins to live in.Mar 26, 2011

Ushuaia268 viewsThe government allowed settlers to place their houses whereever they wanted, but asked them to build them on top of tree trunks so they could be moved. When streets were built many of the houses needed to be moved to other locations. Now, many of them have been moved onto permanent foundations, but many remain on the trunks.Mar 26, 2011
