In an attempt to understand the technology of building a roundhouse, our ever resourceful Secretary has made a 1/12th scale model from natural materials. It is made so that part of the roof can be taken away to reveal the inner area and construction details. He has also supplied the roundhouse with typical furniture and craft paraphernalia such as a loom and hide stretching and drying rack. It further shows the hearth, beds, cooking utensils and decorations and is completed with a live-in family. Dad can be seen repairing the roofing materials.
