Sculpture in at least two pieces: pink house (A) and green porch (B). Corner of porch as broken so (B) is actually in two pieces. Also, cactus piece can be removed from (B) (making a possible third piece). House (A) is slab built with a recess on one side in which sits a coffee cup. A cup and saucer are painted onto house above this niche. To sides of niche are to flat glazed (beavertail?) cactus pieces mounted to the walls. Below niche is what looks like a wooden board nailed on with metal nails. A similar "wood" board goes up one side of the building and extends beyond the roof, ending in a triangle piece. Another coffee cup sits upside down on top of this triangle piece. Ceramic porch (B) is made to look as if it were made of wood planks, all with green underglaze. Real metal nails go through porch where boards would be attached. A black and green ceramic snake sits on one side near porch opening and another flat glazed (beavertail?) catcus mounts to a nail on the other side. There is also a gray round piece to one side of the snake. Porch has side walls made of same plank design.

There is sticky residue on porch surface indicating that house should sit directly on top of it.
