The cottages were designed as part of the Worker Village on Isla Sorna. Built in plantation style, they showed signs of once having been once nicely landscaped, but had grown wild in the years without proper pruning. The six of them were intended as housing for the employees working and living on the island. Situated in the center of the cottages was the tennis court and swimming pool. At the northern end of the row was a slightly larger structure that was the Manager’s House. After the evacuation of the island in November of 1989, they were abandoned and fell into a state of disrepair. They became the territory of various dinosaurs, including the pair of Carnotaurus.
