Thatching such a small roof is a very timeconsuming business, besides that, it takes much more reed, compared with a larger roof, because of the short reed, that is needed for the top.
I will rewrite this post, and make only one: The gardenshed, how it is built. It will include all previous parts, and some of the pictures, not all. For all of them, you will have to visit the seperate parts.
I see the professional working, and imagine all the weathertypes. I am sure, very few people are capable to endure this trade. He also tells me that from six new people, 5 go home inside a week. It is nice to see, and much to learn. I want to remember how it was like, so i made a lot of pictures. They are highly interresting to me, but if you don’t like them, just skip.
This is a tool Imre made himself, to put the reed in line.
Finally the reed is being laid on the small roof. The thatcher, a professional from Hungary, thatching every day, summer heat, and winter cold, for more than 28 years, likes big roofs more. Small roofs, too many angles and cutting. Takes much time. But the work he makes is amazing. He is a real pro, and a very nice guy. Here are some pictures of the progress. They are last first.
To accomplish something in life, two things are absolutely necessary: Determination and Perseverence.
As with all things you want to accomplish, you need to be determined, and a lot of perseverence.
The future is being build moment by moment. So every change made in the moment, will be visible in the future. That is also the secret to get things done: In the moment. Another time does not exist.
Images are the best proof you did something. The changes in the moment are kept in the future. Therefore many images, taken over time, will show the progress.
Also the pavement has changed after we got beautiful stones for free! Only for the pick up.
In the first part of the Gardenshed are all pictures of the whole project.
But in this second part there is some kind of history from the start until now, in pictures. For you, to see the progress, but also for me to see it. Because sometimes it is hard to keep focussed, and to remember what i am doing, and for what. Some pictures might not be in the right order, but it will be obvious where they belong in the time-line.
