i recently visited sautee - nacoochee, up in north georgia. there is a georgia folk pottery museum there that has great dioramas of the history and uses of the pots traditionally made in that area. very nice and worth a visit.
on the premises is a restored old one room cabin typical of the hills. it has two doors and one window. of course, all that wood and the spartan furnishings are enthralling, but i'm pretty sure whoever lived there would gladly trade places with me!
this house doesn't even have a wooden front porch floor, just red clay and two stones for a front stoop. anything beyond this was getting fancy.
