The next house in progress.
This way the forces in the two internal walls are almost canceled, it would of been better if all the rooms were the same width.
Remember the cracks? Well after considerable talking (and feedback from some of you) we will this time put the arch over the wall with 1 cm of clay/sand mortar. After we are done with all the arches we will dig this mortar out. The reason being is the arches laying on the wall are not "settling" the same as the arches freestanding. We believe that is something that is causing some of the cracking. Later we will fill that gap with something flexible.
Matt, Jeff, Sean and others : what do you think?
