This thatch hut was carved out of cottonwood bark. The hole in the front window was made by carpenter ants and goes thought to the bottom at the back. There is one other hole on the back. I found dead ants in both holes. The hut is finished with semi-gloss Deft. With the winter storms coming through, it makes you think of the little grass huts, a fruit drink in your hand and the warm ocean breeze.
