18TH CENTURY LIVING HISTORY IN AUSTRALIA.
Monday, 24 January 2011
One of the most common homes built by settlers in America and Australia was the wattle and daub cabin or hut. This type was common back in the old country, so it was a natural method to use in a new country.All the ones shown here are in Australia.
This one made of upright timbers between main corner posts.
This one is the same as above. Built in a forest in Tasmania. I camped in a similar cabin in the Snowy Mountains in winter for about a month.
