Fairytale Houses With Thatched Roofs

Posted on 28 February 2011 Crni

As we all know today they build houses with “normal” roofs, and you’ve probably never seen a thatched house which is a very old roofing method and is used in both tropical and temperate climates.

With thatching the roof of the house is built out of dry vegetation. The vegetation can be out of straws, water reed, heather and rushes that are layered so it can easily shed away the water from the inner roof.

Today you can still find houses with thatched roofs because it’s still practical and cheap. In some developed countries some people order thatched roof on their houses on purpose just to be different or because they like that old fashion style.

It gives the whole house a fairytale look so if you’re into that you should maybe consider getting your roof thatched.
