Vertical Thatch

Thatch is a very versatile building material.

Another unusual construction which is thatched.

Re-thatched last year by one of our Associates, the Hobbiton Movie Set in New Zealand has many thatched buildings of strange construction.

The first purpose-built playhouse in London in 1576.

It has been reconstructed three times since then: once with a tiled roof, and most recently in 1977 with thatch again.
