This is the very cute Jack's Hut, tucked into beech forest on the side of the main highway at Arthur's Pass. You'll pass it if you drive the three hour journey across the South Island, from Christchurch to Greymouth. It's now a registered Historic Site in the care of the Department of Conservation. I'm not sure of its original purpose - perhaps it was an early roadman's hut?
