The sun makes an appearance

It was great to see everyone this morning looking raring to go after the Easter break, even the sun made an appearance!

We have finished the roof structure on one of the quarters of building 547, with all of the ring beams being beautifully lashed with willow. This will be one of the roof sections that we will be experimenting with thatching methods.

Another of the roof quarters on building 547 that we are going to experiment with was also started today. This section is being woven in a similar way to building 851, but the roof structure is different, there is no ridge section on this building. This roof also requires that we weave as carefully as we did on building 851, as all the rafters are fixed at the top.

Stuart, Claire, Denise and Trevor weave another roof section on building 547.
