Must have taken a very long time to build since he had to wait for each batch of tiles to bake then cool. I wouldn't want to be asleep under that 2 ton roof when those fiber ties rot away.

The whole project took 102 days but would have taken 66 days were it not for unseasonal rain.

I also found that very fascinating. Relaxing almost.

The fire starting in the "building the hut" one looks a lot easier than it will turn out to be. A "bow-drill" would make it a lot easier. Not sure what could be used for the string of the
bow but as "innovative" as he is I'm sure he could come up with it. :-)
