One thatched roof finished.

Over the last two weeks there has been some amazing progress on the houses.

The progress so far.

We have completed the knotted straw thatch on House 1 complete with a rush capping on the ridge. This effectively holds down all of the knots preventing them from being lifted by the wind.

We have also finished daubing the walls on House 3. This has had the effect of making it feel like a finished building – even though the thatch hasn’t yet reached the top!

Both House 2 and House 4 have started to be thatched. These will be thatched in the same way as method 3 in our post about thatching here.
