"Graceful Living" brought back some pleasant memories of my childhood. Growing up in Westmoreland, our roof was thatched with board frame. The difference with this one is that it's done in wattle and daub, which is a mixture of mud or clay, daubed onto twigs and branches, constructed vertically with wooden stakes or wattles to form the walls of the house. These types of houses are more than just a reminder of the poverty of their inhabitants, because it also represents the architectural legacy the indigenous enslaved African and Mestizo communities in the Caribbean. You can still find a few of them left in deep rural parts of the Island.
