The house is built like a boat, just upside-down. The lightweight bow shaped frame is covered on the interior with wood boards. The exterior is a simple canvas cover like a yurt. The walls are insulated with sheep’s wool. This combination of materials makes for an extremely breathable house which keeps it dry and comfortable in the humid climate.
