I'm building to shale.


This was one of a few practice builds (in miniature) I did before the 2008 northumberland-dry-stone-wall-festival where we built a similar full size dry stone hut. Chris Barclay and I constructed this tiny shelter at an abandoned slate quarry on Vancouver Island. The success we had with this small scale corbeled vault gave me the confidence to go for the larger one later that year.
