I would like an Ethiopian Tukul

Traditional Ethiopian Tukul, Bingham Academy, Addis Ababa

While we were in Ethiopia in December we saw many traditional tukuls in the rural areas of the country. A tukul is a traditional style of hut used extensively throughout the country.

We had a close up look at several in the grounds of the school where our daughter was teaching last year. We both agreed that we would like one in our garden here in South Australia, so I took a number of photos to show how they are constructed. It seems easy enough so I might put my hands to good use later this year and make one.
