Description: 

This small sharecropper cabin on the De Spain plantation is located at some distance from the mansion: "In the early afternoon the wagon stopped before a paintless two-room house identical almost with the dozen others it had stopped before even in the boy's ten years. . ." (8). One of Sarty's sisters proclaims that the cabin "likely ain't fit for hawgs" (8). There are two beds, but Sarty, his sisters and his aunt sleep "on pallets on the floor" (14).
