With the digger working away in the background we got started on the roof of the staircase. Again we started with a woven bamboo cover, this will be followed by fabric and then ferrocement.

More columns and beams were added to make a cover for the staircase. The wall of this space will be covered with glass (or polycarbonate) to let in light from the large entrance to the staircase, the east facing doorway. The space can then also be used for plants.

We have started building the staircase which will lead up to a balcony between the columns and the walls. The stairs are currently held together by their own weight so the job is a tad precarious in the wind, but next the beams will be pinned into the walls using rebar nails. One day this will be the entrance to a chocolate factory.
