Thorn-Stingley House

The Thorn-Stingley House is a historic house at 1660 East End Road in Homer, Alaska, which was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2001. It is a 1-1/2 story wood frame structure, roughly rectangular in shape, with a side-gable roof and a full basement that includes a one-car garage. The house is in a local interpretation of the Bungalow style, with a pair of gable-roof dormers projecting from the front roof, and a projecting gable-roofed hood above the main entrance. The front facade is divided into three asymmetrical bays, with a grouping of three sash windows in the left bay, the entry in the center, and a single sash window to the right. The house, built in 1945, is one of the city's only little-altered representatives of housing built in Homer's boom years following World War II.

Sod house

The sod house or "soddy" was an often used alternative to the log cabin during frontier settlement of the Great Plains of Canada and the United States. Primarily used at first for animal shelters, corrals and fences, if the prairie lacked standard building materials such as wood or stone, or the poverty of the settlers precluded purchasing standard building materials, sod from thickly-rooted prairie grass was abundant, free, and could be used for house construction. Prairie grass has a much thicker, tougher root structure than a modern lawn. A type in Alaska is a barabara.
