The walls of two buildings are up to height.

We now have the walls on two buildings up to the required height.
With the weather threatening to close in by lunchtime we managed to complete a standard weave to finish the last quarter of building 547. The walls will be brought up to level next week and then a top binding put on, with the next stage being the rafters.

Also today, in our workshop area we have been experimenting with roof construction. As part of our experiments we have been constructing a corner of a roof using bent rafters and woven hazel.

We also thought it would be nice to introduce some of our volunteers.
