Combed Wheat Straw Re-thatch

P1030828 P1030833 (1280x720)

The combination of sunlight on a smooth surface of Thatch which also has wire netting fitted to its surface makes this roof almost shine.  The Combed Wheat Straw was delivered from the West Country.

The roof in Bedfordshire took one of our teams less than three weeks to re-thatch.  All the edges of the roof were stripped out and renewed so the base coat of straw which we thatched over is no longer visible.  The ridge is a simple flush one.
