The Thatched roof project.

Back in July we happened to take a little detour into one of the side streets here not far from the house. Just thought you'd like a little update on the finished product.

This pile of straw.....Ended up on this house....

....which then ended up looking like this....
Can't really come up with a price just by looking at the house, but the story goes that a thatched roof is more expensive than tile, but there's no additional cost of eavestroughing or roof ventilation. I started out trying to sort out the difference between the cost of a square meter, versus a "square", which is 100 square feet, and decided I wasn't going to go there.
Too many variables.
Suffice to say putting any kind of roof on a house that size is going to set you back a pretty penny. We don't really need to know.

Nice job though, innit?

Well, I've been getting too many spam comments showing up. Just a drag, so we'll go another route and hope that helps. So, we won't be hearing anything more from Mr. Nony Moose.
I guess I'll just have to do without that Gucci purse.
