I then cut numerous handfuls of reeds, binding them at one end in order to use the mini-bails like roofing tiles. These where then lain out in horizontal bands, starting from the base of the structure to create overlapping tiles. Long and flexible twigs were then used to tether the reeds down onto the frame. More reed-bails were used at the side to form a make-shift wind break.
In all honesty this was a slow going process. It took me 2 hours to build the structural frame, 2 further hours to tile the roof in a thatch-like fashion and a further hour to insert the wind-break wall and finish it all off.
