This simple looking cottage is based on Bruce Hirst's designs for a cottage, using his wooden plank mold
I used a 2 litre orange juice carton for my building. Note on some of the precut pictures how I'd measured the incorrect hight. Luckily I realised before I started cutting it out.
Unfortunately I didn't get any photos when I glued the casts to the carton.
I have read that coconut fibres make very good thatching, and I was luckily enough to find some, in a pet shop (aparently it's used as nesting material). It was extremely tricky to apply, and in some of these pictures, you can see that the glue isn't quite dry.
Below are my work in process pictures.
