Dormer day 2

An early start and good weather.

Getting the first thatch out took some pulling.

All the removed thatch is carefully sorted and tied into bundles.

As the thatch is removed the steel bars holding it all down are exposed, these have to be cut with bolt croppers. The ends left are razor sharp as I soon found out - two really deep cuts across the back of my fingers and right through the nail of my "unlucky" little finger - yet again.

First view out to Mont Valier - it's been about 8 years since I saw this from the bedroom.

Dormer frame in place...still a lot to do.

From inside and a good deep window seat.

The view from the dormer : )

Interesting how little the thatch has worn over time, something like 6 years since installation? Still seems like it has lots of life left. We never do thatch in USA.
Keep construction pics coming, and good luck. Chip
