I am a Year 8 student at Glenbrae School in Auckland, NZ. I am in Room 7 and my teacher is Mrs Tofa.
Hi Davarni,It is great to see that you considered the similarities and differences between the buildings. Isn't it interesting that the British didn't have bathrooms! They used an outhouse (a bit like a stall in a public bathroom, it was a tiny outdoor hut with a toilet inside) or they used a chamber pot (yes a pot!) in their bedrooms. This would have been pretty gross. I wonder why both the English and Maori used so much wood in these buildings?
Hi Miss. Stone,It is pretty gross that they didn't have toilets, but luckily someone invented toilet!. By the way I think they used lot's of wood becuase their was alot at the time and wood fit the standards unlike metal or steel. - Davarni
