Focusing on walls

We focused today on the walls of the buildings.

We managed to get the quarter of building 547’s walls that we started yesterday up to the required wall height and found that the brash hasn’t affected the structure in any way, the wall is just as strong. We thought that the brash would bunch up in places and prevent the weave from being tight, leaving large gaps that would be difficult to fill with daub. This hasn’t been the case as the wall appears to be the same as the wall on building 851.
We also started another experimental wall section that involves the weave running diagonally up the wall. We are hoping to test whether this method results in a stronger or weaker wall.

We are trying different ways of weaving the walls.

We have almost finished the walls on building 851 with only the binding at the top of the wall to go on, this should be completed tomorrow allowing us to move onto the roof construction next week.
