Preserving the TAE Hut

Today on our field trip we got to see the restoration project of the TAE (Trans Antarctic Expedition) Hut or the hut known as Hillary's Hut) The plan is to restore the hut back to its original colours. The hut has experienced some extreme weather over the years and it needs it's roof fully replaced. When restoring the hut they discovered that it was full of asbestos, so that has to be removed safely and disposed of properly. Here is one of the videos we watched about preserving the hut. We can't image how anyone could build in such cold temperatures!
