Abstract Im Dorfe Buariki baut ein Mann mit Hilfe seiner Verwandten in 10tägiger Arbeit aus Pandanusholz ein wandloses Vierpfostenhaus von rechteckigem Grundriß mit einem Giebeldach. Das Haus hat eine etwa 1 m über dem Erdboden eingebaute, durchgehende Plattform. Das Dach ist mit aus Kokospalmblättern geflochtenen Elementen gedeckt.
Shows all of the important steps undertaken in a ten-day working period as a house is constructed in the village of Buariki on the atoll Tabiteuea. This sleeping house is built in a style which has been customary in the Gilbert Islands since the seventh century - a four-post house of rectangular design with a gable roof, no walls, and a platform built about one meter off the ground. While the men finish the frame construction the women work to make roof coverings from old coconut palm leaves which are tied to the lattice work.
