    Given her name, she should have built that addition with solar panels.

    Plaster is not strong enough to build with. The main support had to be a more sturdy frame. Hair is common to use with plaster as horse hair has been used for many years now. Plaster was applied over spaced wood lathe wall construction.

    A long time ago, in a cartoon called “That’s Jake”, Jake was stuck in traffic with a woman and baby. He said something like, “Anyone who likes urban expansion was never stuck in traffic in Atlanta, in mid-August, with a broken air conditioner, a mad woman and a crying baby.”

    Atlanta was originally built at the interior end of a railroad running to the Savannah and coast, thus, “Terminus”. The original new name was the rather ambitious “Atlantica-Pacifica”, which soon became “Atlanta”.

    As to hair and plaster, it’s as ordinary as log cabins.

    No Walking Dead fans? Terminus was full of crazy people.
