"I built this hut in the bush using naturally occurring materials and primitive tools. The hut is 2m wide and 2m long, the side walls are 1m high and the ridge line (highest point) is 2m high giving a roof angle of 45 degrees. A bed was built inside and it takes up a little less than half the hut. The tools used were a stone hand axe to chop wood, fire sticks to make fire, a digging stick for digging and clay pots to carry water. The materials used in the hut were wood for the frame, vine and lawyer cane for lashings and mud for daubing. Broad leaves were initially used as thatch which worked well for about four months before starting to rot. The roof was then covered with sheets of paper bark which proved to be a better roofing material. An external fireplace and chimney were also built to reduce smoke inside. The hut is a small yet comfortable shelter and provides room to store tools and materials out of the weather."
Eigentlich bin ich ja kein Fan der katholischen Kirche, aber zum heutigen Weltflüchtlingstag haben sie ein großartiges Video produziert und bereits gestern veröffentlicht! Respekt, Freunde!!!
„Überall auf der Welt fliehen Familien vor Gewalt. Die Zahlen sind gewaltig, aber wir dürfen nicht vergessen, dass diese Menschen Mütter und Väter, Töchter und Söhne sind, Menschen wie Du und ich – bevor der Krieg sie zur Flucht gezwungen hat. Am Weltflüchtlingstag sollten sich alle daran erinnern, was uns verbindet: unsere gemeinsame Menschlichkeit.“
(António Guterres, Flüchtlingshochkommissar)

Bill's repair shop doubles as his gallery and supplies materials to build his art, but as consumers are more inclined to replace electronics rather than repair, Bill reassesses the expense of his creative endeavors."
