Eagle House Sue Coleman Art Card
The Haida people built two different types of houses, which differ mainly in the type of construction. Eagle house is type 1, a simple support structure of two parallel beams set on pairs of uprights. To do this they added framework of rafters, corner posts and gables, and then covered them with planks. This type was used throughout British Columbia and was the main type of house for the whole region.
