Today we finished weaving the hazel rods to the top of building 851, we will spend the next few days tidying up the top ridge section before beginning the thatching next week.

We have also finished the roof structure on the second quarter of building 547. As can be seen the weaving has only been completed to half way up the roof, this is because we are testing different thatching methods on the whole building. As a result it will be very difficult to join the different methods together, so we are just going to thatch sections.

One thought on “Reaching the top

  1. This reminds me so much of my childhood.
    I would read about various structures and go out into the woods to attempt to duplicate them
    Lord only knows how many “primitive structures” remain in the woods surrounding the house I grew up in, scattered throughout the woods.
