Today we finally reached final wall height and were able to start the second set of rafters for the main house. Each rafter is a 4 diameter pole spaced at 2 feet on the wall.
The picture below gives a general idea of the shape of the roof. Any water not used by the living roof will run down to a water catchment in front of the kitchen and used for our garden. You can also see some of the sample plasters we have been putting on the walls. Final recipe = 3 parts sandy soil + 1 part clay slip + 2 parts horse manure + 12 cups flour paste + 1/4 cup linseed oil.
Sleeping loft with cob headboard/nightstand.
