Sod Texture, inspiration and potential!
The walls sink about 1 inch a year so the door frames and doors have to be changed and refitted, or .....perhaps they add more sod around them on a regular basis - am not into the real exact science of how to build with sod =-)
film found on YouTube.
As a person easily excited by textures, well, my eyes and my fingertips were feasting for a long time at this site.
And here is the last piece of sod, hopefully it can excite and intrigue you as much as is did and does intrigue me - L'Anse aux Meadows is a magnificent place to visit, not just because of the viking site but the whole drive up from Deer Lake, along the coast of the Northern Peninsula in Newfoundland is something I have never seen or experienced before.
The mountains, the table lands, the feeling of the caribou living and giving birth up there, just as we were going through, the many white spots of snow still lingering far into the summer, the moose on the road, at the side of the road, on their knees, bending, looking, contemplating why we would want to be moving so fast.
