Light Clay Straw infill walls on a tree house!!!

I built a treehouse this weekend and I made it round with a sloping flat roof.

It is 8 feet in diameter and I need to fill the wall cavities with light clay straw slip. There is no charge for this workshop but donations are appreciated. I need the following:

Glass bottles for letting light in : green, red, yellow, blue, clear, at least 5 of each.
Also could use some round window items light port holes from a ship - that would be totally rad!
Also need skylights - round bubble type or let me know what you have.
Do you other round items that would make cool windows? Or a neat door? Also need cool door hinges and sweet door handle. Do you have a funkadelic light fixture for the inside or some "off the hook" swag for the interior? I will add photos soon of the famed treehouse.

Besides infill for the walls we need to make round windows if no rad portholes magically appear. The tall stump where the tree house will eventually be installed needs to have the bark removed, we need to make a killer arched door, rafters need to be trimmed, ridge beam needs decorative jigsaw work, ect.

Bring your own work gloves - safety glasses - hat - water bottle - lunch and snacks. We will start at 9am and work until we want to stop or to sundown and have a camp fire in the "Fire Pit" - we can chat about natural building and such.

    Hi Peter! I'd really love to help out this weekend and learn more about straw infill, but I've unfortunately got other plans. Do you think you'll have additional workdays in the near future?

      Well - other plans may have to wait - this is an important step on the path to oneness. Just kidding! Not sure when I will be at it again - possibly Sunday afternoon. Hope to work on it some more in mid July.

    I am looking for front loader easing machine doors to use as round windows - anybody have some or know where I can get some from a appliance junk yard?

    Count me in. I haven't been a part of tree house construction since I was 9. My chillins are getting older everyday and I promised myself they wouldn't grow up without one. I have some pretty cool antique door hardware that might work, and an old faux lantern exterior light. Do you want to see some pictures?

      Eric - pics would be great - my email is [masked]. If no pics then bring them along if they don't take much room.
