End of the first week of construction

It’s the end of the first week and we have made fantastic progress so far. When we started on Tuesday there was just some marks on the ground and five days later we have definite buildings emerging.

We have been working today on building 851, steadily weaving the walls. The challenge has been to twist the hazel rods around the door posts to lock them into the structure. Some of the wall posts are offset and so weaving around them has been tricky, this lead to the hazel rods making cracking sounds as they bent, we were assured that this is ‘just the fibres’!
As can be seen from the photos we are well on the way to having the walls completed by the end of next week.
