Hi Lee, I suppose the house will resemble a swedish sweat house once the thatch is up and the rayburn fired up? Insulation just has to be better than slate.

Can you post more pics of how the thatching works in different stages? Never seen it done before. thanks

I'm away for a few days but will try to capture all the stages on the barn roof next week.
I can send you 'The thatchers craft' in pdf format which is an excellent manual for all forms of thatch but you'll need to give me your e-mail address.

Tried to send you document, some sections have bounced back - perhaps the files are too large. The book is available for free download here:

Thank you. Got the book from the website link. I have a become interested in older building techniques since visiting the Hebrides and seeing the old thatch cottages. You never see stuff like that here in USA. Thanks again, Chip
