Patricia Kramer discusses a few of the nearly 200 corbelled buildings members of the Vernacular Architecture Society of South Africa have documented since 2006.

"Corbelling" describes the process by which successive layers of flat stone are placed, each layer extending a little further inward than the layer beneath, until the walls meet at the top.
