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

This will be a continuation of the light clay straw slip workshop a week prior.

I built a round treehouse - being such left me with not too many options for wall coverings - so I decided on light clay straw slip between studs and a earthen plaster on both the inside and outside.

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 disco ball or some "off the hook" swag for the interior? Also need some dark wood dowels to make plugs to hide the lag bolts in the floor, could also use some dark wood strips for between the floor boards. 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( rectangular windows acquired, portholes would still be most excellent) . The tall stump where the tree house will eventually be installed needs to have the bark removed (Done), 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" or we can go swimming at a near by rock quarry with crystal clear water and catch the sunset and come back for a bonfire. (Lots of options)- we will chat about natural building - we can review your ideas for your project as well.

    Well - the treehouse will be outfitted with tall rectangular windows since I found them next to someones garbage and I did not want to see them go to the landfill - round windows would have been cool. I am hoping to install some birdhouses around the perimeter of the treehouse just under the eve. I am thinking of trying to attract owls and or wood ducks. Probably just end up attracting a dodo bird! Ha!

    Could use more bodies for this weekend - if you can make it I will buy pizza for lunch and supply fermented beverages.

      Oh yeah, and I can bring bottles up to whazzoo. I've got a milk crate full that my parents can't believe I haven't recycled yet.
