Painting depicting a flat-roofed, single strong house with an earth roof from which the support poles are protruding, with a chimney and a window with seven panes. The house appears to be built on a frame, perhaps a railway carriage or a lorry container. In the foreground of the yard there are a pile of branches, a stack of brushwood, and a poplar tree. Outside the fence are more poplars, and a grey-blue sky.
