This weight factor is important considering the distance the wood must have been hauled by hand to the building site. The rounded shape and lack of right angles was also helpful under the wind load to be expected on mound top locations. 6) lack the shell effect, as their end walls are vertical. It has been suggested that the principle advantage of this would be the opportunity to easily make additions at either end, without unfastening end poles, and this could be important in the case of longhouses, with the addition of more families.
The interwoven framework of the experimental structure. short wall, and securing them at the desired height by binding them together with bark lashing. It was helpful to bend the endmost short wall poles beneath the ﬁrst long wall poles to bring the roof down to the desired height. 3). This alternating sequence of “weaving” allowed us to approximate the building’s ﬁnal form, proceeding from the ends toward the middle. Since the poles in the narrower, end walls were usually too short to span a full half-length of the structure, the alternating weave sequence for uprights was less consistent toward the center.
To correct a somewhat saddle-backed roof line, poles in the long walls were unlashed and adjusted to the correct height, short braces were interwoven, and a long, single, unbent ridge pole was woven into the peak from one end to the other. One design feature was added during project planning based on ethno- 40 Dennis B. Blanton and Thomas H. 4. The experimental structure complete with daub walls and bark roof. graphic evidence. Since suitable native plant material was not available in abundance, we opted to cover the building with a bark slab roof in the fashion described among Creek Indians of Alabama (Swanton 1946:394).
