A Tour Of The Outside Of  A Thatched Roof House

A Tour Of The Outside Of A Thatched Roof House

Wiltshire

Our group was very fortunate to have the opportunity to see both the front and back of this beautiful thatched roof house. The owner,
Pamela, is shown with one of our group in the second image. She told me that the thatched roof came with the house when she
and her husband bought it and that it would cost a fortune to replace it with a regular roof. She also mentioned that
there were zoning laws that prevent owners of thatched roofs from converting to a regular roof.
Finally, she mentioned that the thatched roof keeps the house warm in the winter
time and cool in the summer time.

Hi Jay,
What a treasure. That house must be a draw for the movie makers. Do they still make Thatch roofs? These are all wonderful scenes that you captured. \/
