Bamboo

Wall frames

Roof supports

Bamboo is a material that is available and renewable. Bamboo is mainly used for roof poles.

Granaries

Bamboo is used both as the roof poles and as the horizontal supports. Because the thatched roof is not thick, the weight is a lot less.

Both the support members and the actual fill for the windows are constructed with bamboo.

Windows

Bamboo stalks are set into the ground and provide the vertical support. Horizontal supports are bamboo strips which are tied to the vertical members with string.

This structure under construction will be a new kitchen. The bamboo used is quite large. Vertical supports are set into the ground and the tops are notched to support the horizontal memeber.

Many granaries are constructed using strips of bamboo. Stips are weaved around vertcal members. The vertical bamboo strips are 2 or 3 placed next to each other.
