The bunk house had about 8 men in it. It was minimal but had the look and feeling that people lived in it,

"The bunk house was a long, rectangular building. Inside, the walls were whitewashed and the floor unpainted. In three walls there were small, square windows, and in the fourth, a solid door with a wooden latch. Against the walls were eight bunks, five of them made up with blankets and the other three showing their burlap ticking....In the middle of the room stood a big square table littered with playing cards, and around it were grouped boxes for the players to sit on."

The bunk house gives us a sense of the life of the itinerant worker. This is not home; it is only a place to sleep.
