Doors, Windows and Roofs for Mud Building

Duration: 2 - 3 hours

Doors, windows, roofing and other features need to be created and fixed to the mud walls. In the past, doors and window frames have been attached to the mud walls with wooden plugs. Today they are more often attached with nails or metal bolts. Another option is to tie these frames to reinforcing materials (e.g. wire mesh or barbed wire) which is embedded in the mortar between rows of mud bricks. In this course, you will learn to determine options for building each into a mud building.
