Another Cabin

I had this idea of using rawhide dog chews for making a cabin. What do you think? This is sposed to be a crude and hasty built shelter. I found out that the chews are weaker than I expected and that many broke during construction.

If I did this again I would just use them as is and stack them alternately. That would have lave large gaps but that would be fine. I would just need to find things to stuff in them. I'm thinking putty and some pine branches (to scale of course) would be a good idea.

I also found out that I should have built this one level at a time instead of one wall at a time which made it a bear to try and fit together. Thank heaven for pva glue and putty.
