What an unusual look - an interesting photo. With the sand piled up around the "building", I'm reminded of Frank Herbert's novel, "Dune."

What an interesting place. I feel like I want to see more of the surroundings for context to understand the story of this house. Is it isolated by itself, are there more houses like this? Who lives here?

Thanks for your comments on Tin City. It started in the late 1800’s early 1900’s with two tin huts that were built as fishing shacks. In the Great Depression Tin City grew to 14 huts. Apparently it was known as Tin City due to the buildings being made from Tin and was also a play on the name Steel City (referring to Newcastle about 30 mins to the south). Some movies have been made at this location, including parts of Mad Max. The pub still stands! I see if I can post some more photos tonight if you like

So isolated. Where was this?
