The evidence for this building in the original consists of a chalk floor with a hearth but no stake holes for the walls. This means that any structure that we build has to leave no trace.
The main structure consists of larch rafters with woven hazel ringbeams. One section of the building is completely woven hazel, this provides a base for the grass thatch to fix to.On the other sections we have experimented with different thatching materials and methods, with most of the thatch on the roof tied on with willow.
A floor has also been laid in the building made from crushed chalk.
