He was tasked before the holiday to make a house out of mud and sticks
he contracted me as principle contractor
With his help we have completed it
The client Jay wanted arias left uncoverd so it can be seen how it was built
The roof at the front remanes un finished as the roofer walked off

many many years! since I was a kid
Now then, about your planning application and historic building regulations. Did you use period correct materials? Did the whattle and daub wall structure contain cow dung, soil and urine? Is the thatch layered to prevent animals slipping off when it rains cats and dogs? Does the doorway have a thresh hold to retain the threshed staw flooring?

Seriously, well done

Bill, I love it all, however I need to correct one thing, something I would normally not do, but the wee boat is called a coracle, not a cortical (that's summut to do with brains!). :D
