End of the fourth week

The re-tying of the roof on building 851 was completed this morning, allowing us to now weave all the way to the top. The weaving has been continuing and we are now about a third of the way up the rafters. We should see this part of the roof finished during next week.

On building 547 we have been fitting some of the ring beams to one of it’s quarters in preparation for the thatching to start. These are being fitted at regular intervals so that when the thatch is attached it creates a sufficient overlap, encouraging water to run off, rather than through the roof. As you can see from the photo we have been lashing the ring beams on with willow.

This is our last day before a well deserved Easter break, we will start back again next Tuesday, invigorated and raring to go.
