Ahmed and Mohammed in front of a being-restored 500 year old mud house in Najran

So here are the full eight storeys of the 500 year old mudhouse in Najran, which Mr Mohammed is having restored. The work is almost finished and it looks spectacular. We were treated to tremendous hospitality by Mohammed as he showed us around his farm and introduced us to his farm hands and builder. The rope seen dangling is to support the wooden platform which is raised to allow work to be done on the upper floors, although right now, only the entrance needs to be completed.

Here is the video of the mud being applied to entrance to the house.
