now this one could be messy
as a first project to investigate the properties of mud mixed with straw and horseshit for building, i am going to attempt to make two walls about 1m wide and 1.5m high. obviously i will do some research about materials – particularly the local waterproofing substance (in mexico they use cactus juice and that worked pretty effectively for the mayans).
these two walls will hopefully provde a porch on the ger (yurt), but i am also investigating whether it can be used to fill in the gaps between the floorboards and the canvas wall of the ger.
messy but fun too
AND to get the materials we have to visit the ranchero who wears chaps and tassles and has 8 massive horses, so if you like western style horse riding around the valleys, that can be arranged (about 30 euros i think)
DATES: 17th September weekend
