Cook House features a Wattle and Daub house which is common to many tradional Cayman houses with white sand yards. The technique used ironwood posts to support walls woven with cabbage wood. The wood was then plastered over with daub, a mortar that includes burned coral. Making the daub was often a neighborhood activity since it was so labor intensive. This style was sturdy and could withstand the hurricanes and tropical storms as well as rain and sun. This technique is no longer used.
