Cruck House thatched roof is nearly done. I am doing an update now even though this Coventry thatched roof it isn't completely finished. It is possible that the whole roof might be covered with a wire mesh (I am not sure) which might hide some of the detail.
When I was taking photos today, a man stopped to talk to me. He had been living in the area for 38 years. He said that this is the third roof this house has had since he lived there. So that gives you an idea of how long they last.
At some point I will show you the finished article in bright sunshine and hopefully I can get some technical details from the thatcher. Well, that is the plan.
PS - Happy Valentine's Day to you ALL :)
