I built this grass hut up on a ridge. It's roughly parallel with the tiled hut and wattle and daub hut that are a couple of hundred meters away down in a valley. I built it on a ridge to get away from mosquitoes in wet weather. This project took 7 days to make. I looked for a spot and cleared it on the first day, built the frame on the second, and spent the next 5 collecting grass. The type of grass is Guinea grass, an introduced species here in Australia meant for live stock. This grass is difficult to collect in this dry forest and I had to climb further into the mountain to get it.
The design is a simple pointed dome that's easy to build. The tools used were simply sharp stones and a digging stick. It's 2.5 m wide and 2 m tall. 8 lawyer cane strips were driven into the ground to form the ribs of the structure and hoops of cane were put over this to attach the grass to. Vine was used to tie the frame together and to tie handfuls of long grass to it. When the hut was almost finished a cap was made and lifted onto the top of the dome to finish it.
This hut is easy to build and houses a large volume. The shape is wind resistant and strong for it's materials. Gaps can be seen in the thatch but not if viewing from directly underneath meaning that it should shed rain well. A fire should be possible in the hut as long as it's small and kept in a pit in the center.The reason the hut took so long is due to the scarcity of grass on the hill. It could be built much quicker in a field.

Great Britain’s Most Outspoken Cardiologist Sets the Record Straigh...

by Pam Vernon

So we've all been hammered endlessly about this risk! For at least three decades ... or more. Another clue to why we must do our own research into what independent studies are saying ... and NOT industry funded studies. If you have not yet woken up to the fact that corporations are about profits not people, and the medical industry was heisted for profit around one century ago, then you're on a slippery slope. Sound extreme? I once would have thought so but after many thousands of hours of reading and examining the conclusions made by independent health professionals who stand to gain little if anything from their findings ... I've concluded they are providing us with truth.

Listen to this Doctor speak of his findings ... he's interviewed by Dr Mercola.

By Dr. Mercola

Is saturated fat really the health hazard it’s been made out to be? Dr. Aseem Malhotra is an interventional cardiologist consultant in London, U.K., who gained quite a bit of publicity after the publication of his peer-reviewed editorial1 in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) in 2013.
