Tratt Brothers - Part 2

I stopped and had a chat with Trevor Today. He was explaining that on this roof they are
only replacing the top layer of the roof and that it is a straw roof. He also told me that they are only doing the front and side as the back had been done some years ago.
So this is what it looks like under the top Layer. Trevor is screwing wires into the trusses with this long drill bit so they can cause as little damage as possible, rather than nailing them in which will cause the plaster to fall off inside.

That's pretty cool. We don't have that around these parts.

Had a nice dinner chat with Chris Bromfield last night about the house and the neighborhood. He quite likes Barrington and has good memories of thatching there. Thanks for sharing this, Paul.
