Noticed, holiday day three: Sri Lankan prefab structural posts look to be made in a mould lined with recycled paper. The remnants of the paper combined with the wobbles and imperfections caused by it gives each post it’s own personality. Given the new industrial aesthetic of exposed breeze blocks and concrete, these would give a nice addition of a more human touch. Wonder if you could import them or if they’d meet UK building standards if you could? Also, the place we’re staying numbers their palm trees, which I understood was for keeping track of the number of coconuts produced by each. The greater effect that it gives is of a really slow race or some odd sort of betting pool. Go tree 23! Finally, the lawn here is mostly clover which looks lovely. It supports my desire for more than grass lawn options back home. Personally I’d like a moss lawn but could be swayed by this.
