Longhouse, day 4

Yesterday we finished the interior framing of our Longhouse. Above, we started by lashing on top poles on each side. Then, below, we started lashing on other side poles.

Above, when the side poles were all done, we lashed on a sapling and bent it into place to create the roof arches. Then, below, we used long thin poles to add stability to the roof.

It sort of remains to be seen whether or not our framing holds up to our cover (which we'll be putting on tomorrow). Fingers crossed!
