day 300 - bamboo (3) - walls and roofs
Bamboo was often used as rafters for thatched roofs all over Japan.
Wattle and daub.
This technique can be found throughout the world. Sticks and clay strengthened with straw. In Japan the 'sticks' were usually split bamboo.
Time is undoing the construction process.
