The Roof is ON!

Wow, what a labor of love! the roof cap kicked my butt, I had to put the cap on without being able to climb on the roof (since its made of elephant grass) I had to work from below and then attach the last two rows of thatch from that spot too. It came out nice, now to see how much rain it will stop....So now its dried in ...time to start the walls and interior.  Met with the landscaper this week too, can't wait to get it started if I can't live in Tahiti I'm bringing it home to Roswell. Enjoy the pics.

 I used 16" wide sheathing for the two part cap. then covered it in tar paper then attached the remaining portions of thatch I had cut off the 20 ft rolls to complete the roof. I had 8" left over from the thatch! that was close.

my makeshift scaffolding
