Can you appreciate how tricky this cubby must be to plaster? Going around that shelving… Here, Maru-san is making sure he can take enough time to hit all the details without loosing moisture, using a small brush to wet down each little edge. As a tarp he is using a “mushiro,” the stripped off surface of a tatami mat that we can get from tatami refinishers. Reused! It’s our standard tarp indoors. Also note he is wearing “inside shoes.” We have to change our shoes at the entrance, as per Japanese custom.
