Return to the Forest Natural Building School — 1 Comment

  1. I’m interested in possibly building something like this next year. Looks like a fun project. Compare this design with Toda Huts from a previous blog post.

    Toda Huts use bundles of small bamboo instead of large curved bamboo. Curved bamboo is easy to find. The photo above shows an important detail. Notice how the bamboo is joined at the ridge. It looks like they used bent pipe inside the bamboo to join the pieces. Also it looks like they’ve pieced together straight and curved sections of bamboo. I’d rather spend a day wandering a river bottom to find one piece sections of the desired curvature.

    Here’s a photo of a Toda Hut being built that shows the details.
