How to Build Your Interhovse

As you may or may not know, Little Interhouse is an party that each house builds and puts on once a year. Blacker’s Interhovse is always third term, and the hovse gets together to build something we deem awesome every time. This year’s theme was How to Train Your Dragon. We built our dance platform to be like the training arena in the movie, paper mached three large dragons, made two small houses, a giant mural, food worthy of the norse gods, and more. Here’s a collection of photos from Interhovse and its construction.

Of course, the night we were due to paint the dance platforms, it rained, so we made Giant Fort the Interhovse.
