Description: 

Mrs. Hait's house is located on the edge of town near the railroad tracks. It is a "little wooden house painted the same color that the railroad company used on its stations and boxcars" (243). Beside the kitchen door is "the wooden lid of the cellar stairs" (244), "wooden steps at the back door" that lead to "the wooden planks" which form a path to the "wooden shed in the corner of the back yard" where the cow lives (244). After the fire, all that's left of the house are "two blackened chimneys," and all that remains of all this wood is "still-intact cowshed," into which Mrs. Hait moves (257).
