From Wikipedia:

Jose and Gertrude Anasola House
The Jose and Gertrude Anasola House near Shoshone, Idaho, United States, was built in c.1913 by stonemason Ignacio Berriochoa. It is a stone house with a shallow pyramid roof. Its front wall is built of dressed stone and a light plastering does not conceal the stonework. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.It was home of a Basque family, Jose and Gertrude Anasola, who operated a Basque boardinghouse nearby. It is a 26 feet (7.9 m) by 30 feet (9.1 m) lava rock structure that is "boxy" in appearance, which is speculated to perhaps be in imitation of the boxy Colonial Revival style frame houses being built in the area by non-Basque wealthy sheepmen.
