    Side
    view of the structure, walls will be adobe and the roof will be made of
    straw. Honorio, the father, will be teaching us how to make a
    traditional straw roof, from that area of Mexico.

    Another view from the top, wall structure included. All the buttresses are to add strength against earth quakes.

    Here
    is a basic design of a small home living structure that can easily be
    added onto. We will be using this as a design for the project in
    Oaxaca.

    Thank you, Sarah Grunder, for your contribution!  Let Baby GH know there's a tree in Oaxaca that's being planted in his honor.  It will be big by the time he's our age!  :)
